Former mayor and city councillor, Charles Pender, believes his record of leadership combined with a vision for a sustainable and growing city makes him the best candidate to lead Corner Brook forward over the next four years.
Pender will try to reclaim the mayor's seat in the upcoming municipal election.
Pender says during his time as mayor, he sought new opportunities to promote Corner Brook and developed a 10-year plan to move the city forward.
"The refurbishment of Margaret Bowater Park, Captain Cook's Monument, and Bartlett's Point along with new children's playgrounds, walking and bike trails and the Wellington Street Soccer Complex are just some examples of the positive impact this strategy has had on our city," said Pender in a prepared release. "As mayor, I was able to work with the provincial and federal governments to access funding to pay the majority of the costs on all of these projects and more."
Pender also cites the new Corner Brook City Hall project and the city's new water treatment plant as examples where he was able to take advantage of unique funding arrangements to keep costs to city taxpayers as low as possible.
Coun. Donna Francis is also running for mayor.
