Two more people have joined the race to become mayor of Regina.
Evangeline Godron announced her candidacy hoping to improve on an already ‘great city.’
Godron has taken a stab at politics twice, as a Green Party of Saskatchewan candidate, and says she loves the feeling of being a candidate.
If elected, some of Godron’s proposals include donating half her salary to people affected by cuts to social services, implementing the use of hemp-based sidewalks throughout the city, and opposing an oil pipeline through the city’s east end.
Godron currently works as a playwright, and says she’s been a human rights activist since grade four.
Also running for mayor in the upcoming election is Robert Allin, a city bus driver and small business owner, who is new to politics.
Allin says he would like to take on what he calls the growing crime rate in Regina. If elected Allin says he could work closely with police to engage Regina’s youth and prevent them from committing crimes.
Allin is also concerned about the city’s roadways, saying larger repairs need to be done to prevent the major breakdown of Regina’s streets.
Godron and Allin join Tony Fiacco, Jim Elliott, and incumbent Michael Fougere as the five mayoral candidates.
The municipal election is on October 26.
