A familiar face is back on the ballot box this Regina election.
Former mayoral candidate Chad Novak is running in the southeast in ward four.
He became well-known in 2012 for his various online spats but said he won’t take that route again.
“I am trying to make sure that I am removed from that harassment and we’re doing everything we can so that people take me as a serious candidate, which I very much am,” Novak said.
Novak’s platform focuses on taxes, in particular commercial rates, which he argues are too low compared to other cities. He would like to see a better balance between what businesses contribute and what residents pay.
Currently, ward four incumbent Bryon Burnett and Asfaw Debia are also registered candidates.
