Cote Saint-Luc, September 6, 2009: With municipal elections for the City of Cote Saint-Luc scheduled for November 1, 2009, incumbent Mayor Anthony Housefather and all eight of his city councillors have announced their intention to seek re-election .
The mayor is extremely pleased with how well this council has functioned as a team. While each will run independent campaigns , the mayor has announced support for each of his incumbent colleagues: Sam Goldbloom (District 1), Mike Cohen (District 2), Dida Berku (District 3), Steven Erdelyi (District 4), Alan J. Levine (District 5), Glenn J. Nashen (District 6), Mitchell Brownstein (District 7) and Ruth Kovac (District 8) and each councillor has announced their support for Mayor Housefather’s re-election.
"This has been an excellent council over the last 4 years," said Housefather. "I really do believe we have found an effective and businesslike way to govern the municipality. I have always believed in empowering each member of council and I am very pleased with the success that has come with my decision to assign portfolios to each councillor. They became de facto cabinet ministers if you will and rose to the occasion. We have accomplished everything that was promised since demerger and more and I would be proud to serve with each one of them for the next four years."
