Try, try again

There's no word yet as to whether or not Regina's municipal elections this fall will include a real race for mayor. But there's good news from Saskatoon at least, as 2006 runner-up Lenore Swystun is making another run at incumbent Don Atchison (and assembling supporters at an impressive rate in the process).

Mind you, Swystun will have a long way to go in making up the 25,000-vote gap from three years ago. But the combination of more experienced organization and improved name recognition for Swystun since her last run should help to level the playing field - and hopefully Swystun will end up joining Sean Shaw and others in bringing some much-needed renewal to Saskatoon's municipal government.
