Hurst Will Not Run Again

Hurst announced his plans tonight at the Verdi Club. According to Julie Kotsis’ article on The Windsor Star blog, Hurst threw a few punches at what he called a misinformed few (who are) misleading people to think the town is corrupt.

He wouldn’t be the first mayor in Amherstburg to criticize those who voice concerns about civic matters.

Hurst in Macleans’ Lousy Mayors Article

Amherstburg’s Mayor Wayne Hurst was mentioned in a MACLEANS Magazine article, “Canada’s Lousy Mayors” 

“His re-election platform includes a pledge for a downtown public marina, but he refuses to divulge how it will be financed. “I don’t need to tell you how I’m going to pay for it,” says Hurst, who’s seeking a fourth term. “It’s my vision. I have a vision and I see it taking place in downtown Amherstburg.” A nice vision it may be, but it’s an odd one, considering Amherstburg couldn’t afford the marina it owned: months ago, it closed on the sale of the municipally owned Ranta Marina for $584,000, following years of controversy.”
