MIDLAND – For the last four years, Jim Downer has watched Midland politics from the sidelines.
Now, the former mayor wants back in the action.
“My job is unfinished,” he said, sitting at the kitchen table of his Bay Street home. “I’m in it for the community. It’s not about power or being in control. I’m here for Midland 100 per cent.”
