His hat isn’t in the ring yet – but it’s moving closer.
Former White Rock city administrator Wayne Baldwin has confirmed that he is one of the organizers of a new electoral group formed with an eye to fielding five candidates in the upcoming municipal election, Nov. 19.
And he acknowledges he may also stand for nomination as one of the group’s candidates, along with two other well-known residents – former councillor Cliff Annable and Brad Forster, husband of former White Rock mayor Judy Forster.
“We put in our papers to the City of White Rock Monday as a viable electoral organization,” Baldwin said.
“It is called Team White Rock, which is not a new name. It’s been used and abused before; but this organzation is very much new.
“We’re not pro-development. We stand for good governance – that’s all.”
Baldwin said the organization wants to nominate five candidates and intends to put out its first press release after Labour Day.
“We don’t have all five yet – we’re still drumming them up,” he said.
Baldwin retired as White Rock’s chief administrative officer in July of 2006 after a 23-year career here.
He had previously been with the District of North Vancouver as deputy director of engineering services after a 15-year career with the Canadian Forces.
