It’s that time of year. Candidates for the fall’s election are starting to announce their candidacy. They can’t officially launch a campaign until May 1, but many are officially unofficially launching their campaigns. The most recent is Ryan Kennery who announced his intentions to run in College Ward.
Kennery is a comms guy, with experience working at the city and in the mayor’s office, and now is at Mediastyle. In his press release, he says he “intends to raise issues such as fiscal responsibility, community safety, and customer service during the campaign.”
I’ve had the chance to speak with Kennery (and we were also on the 10:00 Talk one morning…you’re all listening to that, right?). And though it’s way too soon fully assess candidates, I think it’s clear that he’ll make a worthwhile challenger to Rick Chiarelli (assuming Chiarelli is running again).
And lord knows College Ward deserves that.
