Veteran Coun. Lindsay Luby Announces Not to Re-Run in October

One of the most long-serving Toronto city councilor, Ward 4 Etobicoke Centre Coun. Gloria Lindsay Luby, has announced not to rerun again in the coming election. The announcement was made on Thursday’s council meeting, when Coun. Lindsay Luby stated that she won’t be seeking re-election in October.

Counc. Lindsay Luby was first elected to Etobicoke council in 1985, since when she says it has been 30 years that she has enjoyed support from her constituents. She told the council that “we’ve brought some real things to the table, and I’ve been able to work very successfully with my community, whose support I have enjoyed for 11 consecutive terms.” Lindsay Luby explained that one of her most satisfying experiences was her role in setting up the governing structure for the new amalgamated City of Toronto in 2000. She mentioned that “I thought, ‘Oh my gosh. What a chance to be part of a brand new city and to be part of that build, to be part of creating the logo.’ I was part of that.”

The veteran councilor endorsed Humber Valley Village president, Niels Christensen, as her replacement. When making the announcement, Lindsay Luby joked about her choice of perfume to wear on Thursday morning, as she noticed the label read, “Escape.” In addition to her, Ward 3 Etobicoke Centre Coun. Peter Leon has also announced that he will not seek re-election in October. According to Leon, he lived his dream and that council is a place of “integrity, honour and trust.”
