So by my reckoning we're about a year and a half out from the next municipal election. Any early signs as to who might be running for mayor? I would think that Bowman will run for re-election, but he could have a fight on his hands given his so-so performance. Will the centre-right coalition that backed him in 2014 remain behind him, or are they going to try to take him down? It'll also be interesting to see who heads up the challenge from the left... JWL was a fairly polarizing character, sort of our Hillary Clinton. I would think they'd be picking someone more palatable than her this time out which could also mean a more formidable challenge to Bowman.

Usually incumbent mayors don't have much to worry about in this city, but the 2018 election could be really interesting.
