I am running for Midland Town Council because I want to serve the residents of Midland as my career. The role of councillor is one of servitude ; you are the employers.
I would be honoured and find it satisfying to work cooperatively with other councillors, citizens, committees, groups, businesses and communities to secure the future of Midland and the livelihood of it’s residents.
My vision for Midland is…
My vision for Midland is for our town to be the economic and social node of North Simcoe. A prosperous inclusive Midland. A town where the harbour, trails, little lake, downtown, amenities and Midland Bay Landing is a draw for tourists, businesses and residents alike. A beautiful downtown, where the businesses are thriving. Families have leisure time, not part time work. Our grandparents have affordable & health options available. Families dream about their kids futures, and neighbours gather during festivals. A Midland with a robust sense of community, sustainable growth, and a strong future.
I will accomplish this vision by focusing on the following three things…
a) Supporting an economic development plan.
b) No tax increase, it’s not an option when we can decrease expenses in our operating budget.
c) Supporting new and innovative means of providing healthy and affordable lifestyles by implementing the above coupled with retaining medical services, job creation & retention and securing affordable housing options for all stages or circumstances in life.
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 in that role.
a) Director of International Property Development Corporation. (2003 – 2010)
