Talked to a veteran Ottawa City Hall observer the other day and that person couldn’t understand why Mayor Jim Watson announced his candidacy for 2018 about two years before election day.
It doesn’t make sense, this person said. Better to keep the speculation going.
Perhaps it was to scare away potential candidates, the observer said.
But the most likely reason in this person’s mind was that maybe an appointment fell through.
There’s no concrete evidence of that. Perhaps only the mayor knows for certain.
