Timko throws hat into at-large race

By Leith Dunick, tbnewswatch.com

Long-time former city councillor Lawrence Timko is once again seeking an at-large seat in the Oct. 27 municipal election.

Timko, first elected in 1977 in McKellar Ward, spent 29 years at the council table before he was ousted in 2006.

He ran again in 2010, finishing sixth in the at-large race with 12,650 votes, just 746 shy of fifth-place finisher Aldo Ruberto.

TB Newswatch has also learned that former Ontario Heritage Party candidate Paul Sloan intends to file to run in Red River Ward, which would make it a four-horse race.

Incumbent Brian MacKinnon and challengers James Marsh and David George Noonan have already filed to run.
