    Default Calgary mayoral election October 16, 2017

    Don't think I saw a thread on this but the candidates for this years mayoral election were confirmed last week.

    Any thoughts? (other than screw nenshi and his twitter rampages blah blah blah for the 1000th time)

    Shawn Baldwin
    http://www.shawnbaldwin.ca

    Andre Chabot

    Paul Hughes
    Site not complete:http://www.paulinate.com

    David Lapp
    http://lappteam2017.com/

    Nenshi
    http://www.nenshi.ca/



    Only person I've crossed off my list is Paul Hughes as i strongly oppose urban backyard chicken coops. But I haven't really had time to review the rest.

    Here's my TLDR reading their web site:

    Baldwin: Less taxes and more transit subsidies. Trust me because I run a staffing agency.

    Chabot: Economy is bad and you need a new leader, I have been in council for 12 years and that's my qualification.

    Hughes: TBD

    Lapp: Have no job right now or never have/had a career worth mentioning. Volunteer a lot.

    Nenshi: Come at me bro.

    I don't know if Nenshi ordered the videographer to compress the video to make him look thinner or dude is just a retard. How the hell can you should something 16:9 and have black bar on both sides? Or dude still shooting in 4:3?

    Dang, Baldwin is a recruiter? I hate recruiters.

    Won't someone end the purple reign? Spendshi's approval rating is still 56%!

    Wasn't there some beyond member who said they'd throw their hat into the ring?

    Maybe Larry Heather will run for mayor again. Keeping the city safe from bike lanes, abortions, and gay people one sign at a time.

    But those with that attitude are most likely okay with that.

    Well at this point I can't imagine anything worse for the city, so that's the attitude I have. I hope Sean Chu runs.

    Also I did not vote for the NDP, and would never vote for the NDP

    Nenshi, other than the ego, isn't doing that bad of a job. And there is nobody compelling joining the race.

    I will vote for anyone who does this, regardless of their other policies.

    You'll also be waiting for the second coming of Christ, better find some other issue to base your vote upon.
