Gord Steeves has made his intention to run for Winnipeg’s mayor official.
The former St. Vital councillor and unsuccessful MLA candidate filed his papers at City Hall on Friday, flanked by about 50 supporters holding yellow signs who accompanied him to the Main Street administration building.
Steeves originally announced his candidacy during a news conference in October at Assiniboine Park.
Steeves is the third candidate in the race to become mayor. On Thursday, local blogger Gordon Warren filed his papers. Winnipeg businessman Mike Vogiatzakis tried to file, but didn’t have his paperwork in order, saying he would try again on Friday.
The city’s municipal election is October 22.
