Fred Pattje In Nanaimo Civic Election 2011

Councilor Fred Pattje
Will He Run Again??

While he has not officialy announced his candidacy for the next civic election in Nanaimo this November, if I were a betting man, I would say he intends to run for a second term.

Mr. Pattje gained his place in the public eye when he spear headed the campaign using the alternate approval process to halt the Cable Bay project a few years ago.

During his term on council he has certainly put a great deal of time into the position which of course is a luxury of being retired and being able to turn the position into a full time one. He makes the effort to show up at public events (good practice for any politician) and is one of the few councilors who give you the courtesy of replying to an email question.

If Mr. Pattje does decide to run again, it will be up to voters to decide if the decisions he has made demonstrate the critical thinking that is best for Nanaimo taxpayers.
