Candidates For Council Answer Questions That Matter

When you cast your vote on October 22nd, please consider the best talent capable of getting Midland back to work through an unrelenting focus on supporting those things that matter most.
Carole McGinn Nichols
Running For: Councillor Ward 2
I am running for Midland Town Council because…
I seek to serve you & Midland in a level of government closest to you. I value the wisdom of elders, dreams of youth, hopes of business owners and understand concerns of families. Midland is my families home and yours, with your guidance we together can make policies and decisions to stand behind. I enjoy interacting with and learning from people in various sectors & communities. Together, respecting and learning from our past we can design a future worthy of passing on.
My vision for Midland is...
For our town to be accessible, safe & an inclusive healthy community in all stages/circumstances in life. Where our diversity and rich culture, assets, Midland Bay Landing and services are a source of pride, a draw for tourists and businesses. A town that trust its elects, has sustainable growth, excellent financial management practices, suitable infrastructure, is ecologically responsible, is a role model in communications, outreach, urban design, job retention and environmental practices.
I will accomplish this vision by focusing on the following three things:
Fair Taxation & Fiscal Management– manage costs effectively; without compromising efficiency and service levels- infrastructure and capital expense projects; managed critically – forecasting and planning for future needs.
Support the EDCNS– be policy & planning friendly. Support mentorship and training partnerships with educators, businesses & neighbours. Measure against the Human Development Index
Listen to your ideas. Be solution based. Consider new means of increasing: healthy living index, job attraction, housing security & community pride
