Julie Friesen Running in the Federal Election

In a surprise media conference, Julie Friesen has announced that she will be running  in the federal election for the Liberal party in opposition to Norm Boucher, who has also announced he will be running in the federal election for the Liberal party. This is after Julie made the comment yesterday, stating “Citizens of Medicine Hat should be very, very disappointed in (Mayor Boucher)”. There has been some bad blood between the two since the last civic Mayoral election, where Julie was out-voted to Norm by a couple percent. She stated today that, “Second time’s a charm” and that “Here’s my second chance”. There have been some comments floating around how Julie would be a good candidate for the Mayor position in Norm’s absence; however, this can no longer be the case.

    Uck, I have a feeling she will win and if she does it will be because she’s a woman. It seems like she’s being a poor sport, I certainly hope we get some other candidates, at least a dilemma is still a choice. :/
