It's been six months since Cam Guthrie was elected Mayor of Guelph, so what's the job been like so far? Back on April 23, Mayor Guthrie joined us on Open Sources Guelph for the entire hour to talk about these first few months in office, what he's learned on the job so far, what he's accomplished with council, and what remains to be done over the next three-and-a-half years.
With my Open Sources partner Scotty Hertz, we covered a wide range of issues with Mayor Guthrie including the recent budget deliberations, the plans to re-organize Guelph Transit, and stepping in when a community skating rink came under threat. We also discussed the nature of the job for all its benefits and limitations, and what advice Mayor Guthrie might give candidate Guthrie in hindsight. In addition, we also had questions from listeners that we put to the Mayor, and that takes up much of the second half of the show. If you hang in there until the end, there may also be some Star Wars talk.
