VIDEO: Get to know your new mayor, Matthew Shoemaker

During the election campaign, we sat down for an in-depth conversation with the man who is now mayor — a Q and A session that will become a regular feature on SooToday

Welcome to Shoe Ste. Marie.

Local voters spoke loud and clear last night, electing Matthew Shoemaker as the city's new mayor.

The city councillor captured 9,626 votes — 4,200 more than his closest competitor, Ozzie Grandinetti.

During the election campaign, Shoemaker stopped by our SooToday studio for an in-depth conversation about his vision and priorities for the Sault. If you haven't already, you can watch the full interview here.

Now that he's mayor-elect, Shoemaker has committed to participating in monthly video interviews with SooToday during his term in office. Stay tuned for more information on how residents can submit their questions.
