Member of the Bourque Administration
In 1998 he ran for a seat on the City Council under the Vision Montreal label in the district of Darlington. He won with 32% against incumbent Jack Chadirdjian (31%). He served as Montreal's Chairman of the Executive Committee from 1998 to 2001.
He did not run for re-election in 2001.
In 2001 he considered running as a Parti Québécois candidate in a provincial by-election in the district of Labelle, but eventually abandoned that idea. Sylvain Pagé became the PQ nominee and won the election.
