Fed-up homebuilder sets sights on mayor's job - Brantford Expositor - Ontario, CA
Local homebuilder Mike Quattrociocchi says he's so fed up with the "shenanigans" that city staff and council are carrying on over his controversial Grand River Avenue housing project that he is running for mayor in the next municipal election in November 2010.
"I couldn't stand anymore the shenanigans of the last few months that I have every intention of running for mayor and getting elected," Quattrociocchi, owner of Mayberry Homes and a former city councillor, said in an interview Wednesday.
He accused "several members of council" of trying to stall a housing project he has been building in stages by imposing periodic bureaucratic and political "roadblocks" against it.
"Look at this council. Some members can't get along with each other, some are being obstructionist and some are using their position for personal agendas," he said.
