Patricia Mills, the head of the NEO Kids Foundation, announced this morning that she is throwing her hat in the ring to try to unseat Mayor Brian Bigger in the October municipal election.
Mills is the former publisher of Northern Ontario Business and Sudbury Living Magazine, both of which are owned by Laurentian Publishing, which also owns Sudbury.com and Northern Life. Mills hasn't worked for Laurentian Publishing for four years.
In a press conference this morning at the Italian Club in Copper Cliff, Mills said she's watched Mayor Brian Bigger's tenure with "horror and disbelief," adding she "doesn't care" if the arena stays downtown or goes on the Kingsway; her goal is to heal divisions.
Sudbury.com will have more on this story later on today.
