Mayor Urges SJers To Refocus Attention Off Potholes And Plowing

Get your eyes off the potholes and unplowed streets and start looking at the big picture: that's the advice from Mayor Mel Norton, who says people in Saint John need to appreciate the many millions of dollars worth of developments currently happening in the city.

In remarks to common council, the Mayor reminded taxpayers that the Energy East pipeline, data center, and new call center jobs are all indicators of an economic turnaround.

The Mayor says the unemployment rate is also going down compared to what it was a few years ago, which people often overlook.
