Mayor Keith Hobbs was elected mayor of Thunder Bay, Ontario in the 2010 municipal election as a first time political candidate. Mayor Hobbs served as a member of the Thunder Bay Police for 34 years, joining in 1976 and retiring in 2010. In 2014, Mayor Hobbs was re-elected for a second term and feels social progress and economic opportunities go hand-in-hand and advocates that belief on behalf of everyone who lives in the City of Thunder Bay.

The Mayor’s policing career offered a unique insight into the challenges facing Thunder Bay and being on Council allows him a venue to address community poverty, ethnic and cultural equality, economic diversification that offer good-paying jobs and housing for all citizens. Mayor Hobbs is compelled to raise the bar in community safety and crime reduction with a commitment to having a safer, inclusive, cleaner, greener, prosperous and proud community with the assistance and partnership of every citizen and business in the City of Thunder Bay.
