SPOTLIGHT, WITH J.D. BOOTH

Anne Marie Gillis says she wants to bring ‘dynamic leadership’ to Mayor’s position

One of two candidates for top political position, veteran City/Council Councillor is focused on future

When I sat down with Anne Marie Gillis for a conversation about her candidacy for Mayor of Sarnia, it was after a formal invitation was sent out to her and Mike Bradley, the incumbent for the position.

As I mentioned in my column on Monday (which can be seen HERE), only Gillis responded.

I sat down on Thursday, September 6 for a recorded conversation and I remain open to doing the same with Mike Bradley. As recently as Monday, I reached out again to repeat the invitation. Still no answer.

Gillis comes across in this conversation as someone who is experienced and capable of serving as the City’s next chair of Council (which is the role of the Mayor).

She also comes across as someone who would “do us proud” as Mayor.

Granted, a conversation with Mike Bradley has yet to take place. I’m still waiting.

In the meantime, I encourage you to listen to our conversation and share with your network.
