James Gordon runs in Ward 2

Local musician James Gordon, who ran under the NDP banner in the last two provincial elections, will seek a Ward 2 city council seat in the Oct. 27 civic election.
“I have lived in Ward 2 for 15 years, and I have worked to help Guelph realize its amazing potential all my adult life,” Gordon said in a news release Friday.
Gordon is the fifth  candidate so far in Ward 2, which has a vacancy after Tuesday’s announcement that two-term councillor Ian Findlay won’t seek re-election. First-term councillor Andy Van Hellemond said Wednesday that he remains undecided about running again.
Sian Matwey, Mark Paralovos and Chris Keleher Sr. were first to file to run in Ward 2. Former councillor Ray Ferraro, who was defeated in the 2006 election that swept Kate Quarrie from office after three years as mayor, filed his nomination papers for Ward 2 on Aug. 21.
Gordon said he wants to “work hard to help create a city that works, and there’s much work to do. I want to bring a passion and skill to that work in a way that would be non-partisan, progressive, inclusive, innovative, creative, visionary and effective.”
