Regina's Mayor Pat Fiacco makes last State of the City Address
Mayor Pat Fiacco had a standing ovation following his last State of the City address today.
The annual event took on new meaning this year for Fiacco who announced on Tuesday that he would not be seeking a fifth term in office this October.
His speech however, read as if nothing will change and the projects that began under his stewardship will stay the course. Fiacco assured people that the plans for the stadium and downtown revitalization project will not change.
"This is very important, our premier has said that the status quo is not an option for Mosaic Stadium," he said.
Fiacco also made it clear that he will do what he can to ensure his predecessor is on the same page.
"Yes I will be endorsing a candidate, this is too important of a position right now in Regina's history," he said, without revealing who it will be.
Fiacco also blasted one of the current candidates for mayor who suggested on Wednesday that he would rather see the city renovate the current stadium rather than moving forward on a new development.
The mayor who has served the Queen City for 12 years said he is confident that Reginans will see some new faces put their names on the ballot in the coming months.
