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.
