A tip of the hat

I was very surprised with Mayor Fiacco's announcement that he would not seek re-election in the next civic election. The man was riding high in the polls and I expect would have handily won had he decided to run. It's easy for politicians to hang in after their "best before date" and it takes a lot of self-confidence to walk away from a sure thing to pursue new endeavours. He states he accomplished what he wanted to when he first ran and feels no need to stick around for the ribbon cuttings. He appears to be a man without a big ego.

Given these traits I suspect whatever he has planned will meet with success. I wish him well.

  1. Mayor Fiacco has always had his eye on the bigger pie. He is clearly not Sask Party material and there is currently not much future to being an NDPer. I always though he was a Liberal so as such has no future in Saskatchewan politics. If he runs for Regina council he will be tied up until Oct of 2016 after both the next provincial and federal elections. Has he got his eye on a Regina federal seat currently held by an old time sitting member who should retire?
