We believe the answers provide all voters with additional information to make a more informed decision on who is best suited to lead Midland to a better and brighter future. 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.
Running For: Deputy Mayor
I am running for Midland Town Council because…
I want to MAKE MIDLAND THE BEST IT CAN BE
My vision for Midland is…
Strong vibrant economy, value for Midland Tax dollars & a desirable place to live, work & play.
I will accomplish this vision by focusing on the following three things:
(a) Keeping Taxes at or below the rate of inflations
(b) Continue with the Strong Economic Development by working closely with the other communities in North Simcoe – Tiny, Tay & Penetang
(c) Reduce the red tape for developers and businesses to invest in Midland
Describe your top three accomplishments that make you a good candidate for Council. For current or previous members of council, please focus on your top three as a council member:
(a) At Home Business by-law. Midland has one of the most progressive by-laws in the province of Ontario that allow residents to start a business in their home. This is key, as it’s the grass roots business that grow into something big and drives the local economy.
(b) Shared services with Midland and Penetang. We currently share a Fire chief & Building Inspectors with Penetang. This allows both communities to save costs and opens the door for more shared services down the road. As a born and raised Midlander, this is something I was told could never happen, but it is and working wonderfully.
(c) Made the tough decision, Decisive on topics that matter, I’ve never backed down from a tough decision, been the leader at council, and always try to look at issues in a different light. Midland needs strong, respectful leadership that is the voice of all the residents in the town of Midland. The Future for Midland has never been brighter, and a vote for Mike Ross ensures we stay on the path to prosperity.
