A 36-year-old Regina accountant has launched his campaign for mayor.

Chad Novak made his announcement Monday after emerging from a red convertible in Regina's downtown city square.

Novak says he supports building a new stadium and will work to obtain more affordable housing.

Novak also said he has plans to use social media to make city hall more transparent.

Several people have stepped forward as mayoral candidates after Mayor Pat Fiacco said he won't be running in the fall.

They include councillor Michael Fougere, environmental activist Jim Elliott and businessman David Robert (Bob) Loblaw.

Municipal elections are Oct. 24.
