Will the race for mayor be close between Black and Pirie? Both candidates seem to have a lot of supporters.

Who do you think will win for the wards?

If you don't want him.... He must be the right choice.

Black out! Pirie in.

The new city council will consist of five new members and three sitting members.

Ward 1 will see Rock Whissell take the seat that is currently held by Veronica Farrell.

Ward 2 will have Mickey Auger moving into the chair and replacing Walter Wawrzaszek.

Ward 3 will see Councillor Joe Campbell keeping his seat.

Ward 4 will have former city councillor John Curley bumping out Pat Bamford.

Ward 5 will have the biggest changes where newbies Kristen Murray and Michelle Boileau topped the polls. Incumbent councillors Noella Rinaldo and Andrew Marks won enough votes to keep their seats.

Losing their seats were veteran councillor Mike Doody and one-term council member Rick Dubeau.

For those of you that think your taxes are going to go down or stabilize...I leave you this.

[laff

That or expect a lot of cuts.

Let's just say I'm happy I got the heck outta there 4 years ago, especially with the two that got elected in the East End. [cuckoo

That's what happens when 4 people get elected in one riding. Will that ward ever get split up with one member each? Doubt it. I could go on about it, but I've been there done that way too many times.

Andrew Marks got 9.25% of the vote but gets elected, mind you he is only two votes ahead of the 5th place candidate.

I see our old "friend" was at the bottom with 3.35%.

Nice to see Mike and Rick "lookin' to pick a fight" Dubeau get tossed.

Nobody promised to cut taxes. Mine have actually been pretty flat for the last few years. Before that there were huge increases every year for a number of years.

It's the Doug Ford conservative government that could be the biggest threat to our property taxes. But we'll have to wait and see how they deal with municipalities and Northern Ontario.

Timmins is actually is pretty good shape financially considering what the city has dealt with. It the infrastructure deficit that is the biggest problem and will cost us a lot no matter what choices are made in the next couple of decades. Hopefully there will be good long-term thinking and planning unlike what we've seen over the last 30 years.

I never said that either one said that. Most people just don't use their brains when they vote and "hear what they WANT to hear."

Black lost on one thing, IMO.

The reason doesn't matter, as long as he lost.

There is one more council meeting in November left for the current council. In the past, they used to have two or three meetings before the new council was sworn in but they reduced how often they meet. I wonder if Dubeau will attend the last meeting. It's the last chance for him and Mayor Black to argue!

The new mayor and council are sworn in at the beginning of December.

Whether you like him or not, Black did things differently and showed us that there are other options. Social media helped get him elected as councillor and mayor but it also hurt him in the end as he spent way too much time on it and gave too much fuel to his opponents.

I find Pirie to be more of a "do nothing" kind of guy and he didn't really impress me in the debates. But I do like that he took the high road and never attacked anybody. I'm very comfortable with him as mayor from what I've seen. He stated that he won't spend much time on social media which is probably a wise thing to do. He's only one vote on council and it's not as though he has wide-ranging powers. People in Timmins seem focus too much on the mayor over council as a whole.
