Without actually saying the word "mayor," Cam Guthrie came close today to confirming the worst secret in local municipal politics.
During a discussion about the issue of whether councillors should be full-time -- see my column tomorrow for more on that -- I reminded Guthrie that he said last November he would "not be running for a council position in the next election" if it remains a part-time position.
His wording, of course, left open the possibility he could run for the mayor's seat, which is full-time.
Today Guthrie told me he would like to be part of the discussion next-term about whether the council job should also be part-time, hinting he could accomplish that without breaking his word about not seeking a council seat.
"I'd be more interested in looking at a position in town, politically, that would be more full-time," he said.
