Another familiar name could be added to the growing list of candidates who may run for Mayor under the NPA banner on Vancouver council.
Former NPA Park Board Commissioner Ian Robertson confirms he’s had a “conversation” with the party about what role he could play in the upcoming civic election this fall.
It was three years ago when Robertson left politics but at that time he never ruled out a return.
In an interview Robertson says he’s disappointed with the direction the city is going under the leadership of Vision Vancouver Mayor Gregor Robertson and feels now may be the time to step back into the political ring.
Robertson is currently executive director of the Tourism Industry Association of B-C.
Meanwhile former Vancouver Sun Managing Editor Kirk LaPointe is said to also be considering a run for the mayor’s chair under the NPA banner.
