You may not have heard of Ted Johnston before today, but he promises you will hear a lot from him in the upcoming months leading up to the Municipal elections this fall.
Johnston entered the race for the Mayor’s job Friday morning when he officially filed his nomination at City Hall. So far, he’s the only standing challenger for Debbie Amaroso who is seeking her second term for the top job at 99 Foster Ave.
Johnston told saultonline.com news Friday morning “The current administration has no sense of urgency, they don’t seem to understand that this city has not been doing all that well”
Johnston has an extensive background in business having worked over 20 years in the automotive sector and is an “expert” in statistics. The first time candidate says he’s eyeing the Mayor’s chair because he sees the position as a CEO and that’s what he wants to be. “We have to start running this city as a business”
Saultonline was first to talk to the new candidate, watch the video to see his vision for the city and why he only gives current Mayor and council a grade of 2 out 10 for their latest term.
