GUELPH POLITICAST #66 – The State of the City 2017

If you haven’t already read the article, recapped live blog, watched the video, or learned about it somewhere else, you can now download the State of the City right to your device and listen to it via whatever podcasting platform you prefer.

Now this isn’t because I had a guest that fell through this week, no sir. Well, sort of. Still, it’s probably something I would have done anyway because like that other State of the Union, this speech by the mayor is an important benchmark. In it, Mayor Cam Guthrie outlines the achievements of his tenure so far, and what he thinks is working in Guelph and what we should be celebrating.* It’s perhaps an insight into what the mayor is thinking halfway through his first term.

*Areas for improvement aren’t really covered here, so it falls to me to do that in tomorrow’s Market Squared column on Guelph Today #sneakpreview

Mainly, the speech was about #GuelphProud moments, a social media campaign that actually started trending Friday morning as Guthrie delivered his speak, which either speaks to the power of the mayor’s idea or just how many Chamber members are Twitter. Regardless, Guthrie went through a laundry list of accomplishments including jobs, infrastructure, technology and team-building at the breakfast, and I guess it was all so convincing the that mayor didn’t get one single question. Or maybe the Delta Hotel breakfast was just that good.

So let’s go back in time to Friday and a #GuelphProud moment on this week’s Guelph Politicast.
