Atchison, Wolf vying for mayor
There are now two candidates running for mayor in Saskatoon, after former mayor Henry Dayday dropped out of the race Wednesday.
"We certainly differ on some views but we share a common vision and that is we want Saskatoon to thrive and prosper, we want to be responsible leaders for Saskatoon," said 47-year-old research scientist and mayoral candidate Tom Wolf.
Dayday told reporters yesterday he was concerned that having three candidates in the mix would make it easier for Mayor Don Atchison to win again.
He said he will endorse Wolf through the campaign.
Dayday had promised to hold a plebiscite on the Remai Art Gallery of Saskatchewan if elected, but Wolf said this particular area will not be a priority for him.
"I am talking about the future and I'm not interested really in talking about decisions that the current and past administrations have made," he said.
Wolf wouldn't speculate on his chances now that Dayday is out of the race. But he did say that Mayor Don Atchison will have to answer some tough questions about his record.
"The fact is that his record shows a lack of consultation on key decisions, his record shows that he's been responsible for increasing debt in our city and his record shows there's been a deterioration in our infrastructure," said Wolfe.
"Ultimately, the citizens will decide which vision they prefer and which vision they actually believe," he said.
