Video endorsement of Mike Geoghegan posted on Thanksgiving weekend

Victoria-born musician David Foster is endorsing a mayoral candidate for his hometown.

“I want to give you an important message and tell you: You need to vote Mike Geoghegan for mayor,” Foster said in a video shared on Geoghegan’s Twitter. “This guy is amazing. It’s good for you, it’s good for me, it’s good for the City of Victoria. I promise you he will not let you down.”

Foster called the mayoral candidate hardworking, honest and dedicated. The video is less than a minute long and was originally posted on Mike Geoghegan’s YouTube account along with three different versions of Foster’s endorsement, each in varying lengths.

Geoghegan announced he was running for Victoria mayor on Sept. 5. He has been a member of Langford’s planning and zoning committee for seven years, and was a ministerial assistant in Mike Harcourt’s NDP government.
