Conte Still Contemplating Future

Municipal Affairs reporter Gino Conte speaks at Windsor City Council after receiving a key to the city in honour of his retirement.

Three weeks from retirement and the former municipal affairs reporter Gino Conte is still weighing out his options for his future.

One thing is for sure, he’s still tuned into municipal politics and hasn’t ruled out running for Windsor Council in the upcoming general election.

Conte says it’s too soon to make any final decisions, but many people have encouraged him to run. “As I covered councillors and politicians I would tell them ‘don’t put your name in too early because people become sick of you. Just wait a while.’ Usually it doesn’t pick up until after Labour Day.”

Since retiring, Conte says he has been relaxing and trying to fall into a normal sleep schedule.
