Bradley listed as 'Regional Chair' on Niagara Region's website

It may have been an accident, but yesterday St. Catharines councillor-elect Jim Bradley was listed as Niagara's Regional Chair on the official government website.

The former Liberal MPP was listed at the top of regional committees as 'Regional Chair Jim Bradley' for a brief time yesterday afternoon.

Bradley is one of the most talked about candidates to take over the regional chair position, despite the fact he has not yet committed to pursuing it.

A regional staff member tells the St. Catharines Standard she was updating the website by replacing outgoing councillors with the new crop, and Bradley's name replaced Alan Caslin's by mistake.

Bradley and his fellow councillor-elects won't officially be sworn in or elect the new regional chair until December 6th.

Niagara Falls councillor Bob Gale is also rumoured to be eyeing the position.
