Three members of the group’s executive visited Northern Life Oct. 2 for a wide-ranging editorial board interview. The group is currently campaigning to convince council to deal with Sudbury’s $700-million infrastructure deficit by issuing bonds.
Their research shows the city could double its roads work to about $100 million a year, and bond-financing could be a way to finance that work, setting the stage for Greater Sudbury to grow.
The executive was also anxious to separate themselves from the administration of Mayor Marianne Matichuk.
While some members of the group worked on the mayor’s election campaign, they say there’s currently no connection between them. In fact, they say they’ll oppose her if she supports spending $6 million building a new Market Square on Elgin Street.
