Hebert files papers, will run at-large in October election

By Leith Dunick, tbnewswatch.com

Larry Hebert has thrown his name back in the at-large city councillor race.

Hebert, first elected in 2006, is a former head of Thunder Bay Hydro and a longtime activist in the volunteer and athletic community.

Hebert is the 11th candidate to file his nomination papers seeking an at-large spot. Other contenders include Naomi Abotossaway, Iain Angus, Diane Armstrong, Andrew Brigham, Vanessa Catalan, Kimberly Coreau, Larry Hebert, Robin Rickards, Aldo Ruberto, Wolfgang Schoor and Barry Streib.

Of the incumbent councilors, only at-large representative Rebecca Johnson, Northwood’s Mark Bentz, Current River’s Andrew Foulds and McIntyre’s Trevor Giertuga have yet to re-file.

Does no one remember what council was like during Boshcoff's last term as mayor?

I don't understand the people of this city. I follow politics across the country but nowhere is as messed up as Thunder Bay.

Larry Hebert is one of the better alderman this city has had in several years. Your right, I won't be voting for Hobbs either. Full of promises, short on delivery. He opens his mouth, and admin has to muzzle him. Lol Go Kenny go!

Hebert is the only encumbant I might vote for... aside from Boshcoff for mayor.

Why wouldn't you vote for Henry "Mayor in Waiting" Wojak? You seem to agree with him on every issue he has ever posted here!

Im not sure that Henry has actually joined the race, if he does (or already has) I will vote for him since voting for Boschoff is just voting for the other half of the 2 headed snake of the pro welfare dome reptiles.

Perhaps its time for politicians to realize they don't tell us what to do, we tell them what to do?

"...we tell them what to do"
Yeah, right.
The only time you're really the boss is on Election Day. At that time, you vote people into office that will lead the city - hopefully in a direction in which you approve. If a candidate has a differing opinion on matters, then you don't vote for them.
And at that point, your input into the democratic process is realistically pretty much over. Yes, you might cling to the delusion that "we tell them what to do" - and you might be right...on one day every fourth year.

Surely he must be running! I mean, after the hoopla he stirred up in regards to running: http://www.tbnewswatch.com/news/325812/Campaign-conundrum

After signing every one of his posts/publications "Mayor in Waiting" and openly criticizing the current administration, claiming he offered a "voice for the people" rather than other candidates...there is absolutely no way he isn't running!

Anyone who suggests he is not running is clearly crazy. Someone with that much gumption and self praise who absolutely battled to even become a candidate would not crack under any pressure! Don't worry "S Duncan" (ha), you will get you wish to have Wojak to vote for!!!!

PS I don't agree with Henry on every issue. In fact one I can quickly think of is Henry's choice to be against the urban deer hunt scenario.

He is against it, me? Im all for it and think it needs to be un-shackled from the ridiculous constraints it has so it could actually become effective.

Im sure theres lots of other things I wouldn't agree with him on but there will never be a politician or any person that I agree with 100%.

nor should there ever be one.
