Former municipal Director of Communications Ryan Kennery announces plans to run for city council

Announcements have started flowing on who will and won't be running in this fall's municipal election.

Last weekend Jody Mitic announced he will not seek re-election in Innes Ward.

Now Ryan Kennery has come forward to throw his hat in the ring in College Ward.

The former Director of Communications for Mayor Jim Watson t says the city needs to show more love in terms of funding and infrastructure to the Nepean area, and will push for light rail transit to expand to the area as well.

Kennery says the city needs to become more fiscally responsible and that investments in infrastructure should be more closely evaluated.

Kennery says he will release more on his platform in the coming months.

Nominations for city council positions open May 1st.
