I was critical of Foster when I was working for Jamie Bennett and most of the criticisms have held true. Foster has run a less-than-average campaign, allowing what appears to be a streak of disengagement to permeate throughout his bid for Mayor. For example, he announced he was running for Mayor in February, as if he hadn’t known for months, if not years, that he was going to run. And after he announced, he waited six weeks to deliver his announcement speech. For the better part of this year, Foster, clad in tropical print shirts, meandered, rather than ran, for Mayor.
