I promise that if elected, every action I make will be done for the benefit of those who I serve and not myself. Every decision I make will be well thought out, supported by reason and facts which I will convey in a transparent way to all my constituents. I will use my accounting, legal and analytical skills to try to make the best decision for Niagara.
We need more jobs and economic prosperity in Niagara for everyone. I want a place where our kids have an opportunity to stay in Niagara. I believe the way to do this is to concentrate on ways to help those of us who are entrepreneurs and the 10,000+ businesses in Niagara.
We have far too many people living in inadequate housing and often this is tied to poverty as well. In the long run if we can increase our prosperity, poverty and housing issues will be alleviated. But we cannot wait for the long run. We need to find new ways to encourage the building of more affordable housing.
We need common sense to develop ideas to spur economic development and find solutions to alleviate housing and poverty concerns. And we need to be able to do this within an affordable budget so that we do not over burden our residents and businesses with high property taxes and other fees.
bring back professionalism / bring in term limits / remove party politics
Councillors have sat on council for years and let the Region become mediocre. If you cannot institute your ideas over 12 years, I think it is time to let someone else try. As well, it is time to elect independent councillors who have no hidden agenda. It is time to let the employees of the Region provide the advice and professionalism they are being paid for.
