Swan Expected To Announce Mayoral Run

A long-time councillor –and one time controller– is expected to make a big announcement on Wednesday afternoon.

Joe Swan has invited the media to his event on Wednesday at 4pm at the London Music Hall. He is widely expected to announce he has filed his papers to run for Mayor of London.

Swan is the Executive Director of Orchestra London and has served one term as Ward 3 councillor. He also sat on the Board of Control until 2003. Swan holds an honours degree in political science from Western University.

If he does join the race for mayor he will be the third high-profile candidate to file papers, along with fellow city councillor Matt Brown and former councillor Roger Caranci.
