Surrey Mayor Dianne Watts is dismissing any suggestion she aims to use the BC Mayor's Caucus to shore up support for a run at provincial politics.
Watts shot down speculation reported in the media this week that she might be using the caucus as a staging ground for such alleged political aspirations. "I'm not running for anything," she told the Now. "This is not about me personally using anything to advance my personal agenda."
Watts is one of 10 mayors on the caucus's steering committee. On Monday, 140 mayors met in Victoria to discuss finding new sources of revenue for infrastructure programs.
The caucus, Watts said, provides the mayors with the opportunity to raise "signification issues" concerning their communities.
Monday's was the caucus's second meeting. Its next one is scheduled to be held in Prince George on April 29-30.
