PASADENA — Otto Goulding has thrown his hat into the ring in the mayor’s race for Pasadena.
Currently a councillor, Goulding has served on the economic development and finance committees, as well as the Tipping Drive Development Committee, and has spent the past four years as president of the Great Humber Joint Council.
He said his 30 years spent volunteering in a number of initiatives with various local, provincial and national organizations makes him the most experienced to contribute to Pasadena’s growth and prosperity. Initiatives he is most looking forward to working on include the construction of the new multi-purpose building, Tipping Drive development and town boundary extensions.
Childcare is also important to Goulding, and he said he would work towards the establishment of a childcare facility for young families. Town beautification and seniors’ issues also top Goulding’s agenda. The town should work more closely with the Humber Valley Senior Citizen’s group, providing assistance in their efforts to build an extension on their current building, he said.
The municipal election will be held on Sept. 24, with nomination day on Sept. 3.
