A second candidate has filed papers to run for mayor of Greater Sudbury.

On Thursday, Jeffery Huska registered to run in the Oct. 27 election. Huska is the second candidate to file, joining perennial fringe candidate Ed Pokonzie, who filed Jan. 10.


According to a news release, Huska is married with three children and works at Health Sciences North. He also sits on the United Way’s board of directors, and in 2012, was a member of the Market Square Renewal Advisory PanelFrom 2007-2012, he was a member of the Canadian Standards Association “and was part of a national committee responsible for approving all new and amended standards as they relate to the field of Dialysis in Canada,” the release said.  


“As your mayor, Jeff will establish and attend open community forums held regularly throughout each ward,” the release said. “(He) will work in collaboration with council, staff and the people of Greater Sudbury to bring about positive change in our community.”

Current Mayor Marianne Matichuk has yet to declare whether she intends to run for re-election, while John Rodriguez, who lost to Matichuk in 2010, has said he intends to run again.
