I've been living on the front lines of this development and have opposed its reckless nature for the past six years. The previous two administrations have been catering to the needs of the developers, it's time to focus on the needs of the residents.
I went to the OMB to fight for compatible infill housing as prescribed in our secondary plan and presented a resolution to council to define compatibility and update the general zoning bylaw to reflect the needs and interests of the citizens of the town in accordance with the preservation of our small-town character. As mandated by our secondary plan.
I called for an environmental assessment of the proposed Lake based water supply, because I believe it to be of inferior quality to our Artesian Wells, and it will lead to uncontrollable growth.
I was instrumental in the restoration of the seven o'clock Council meeting, the design of the town hall theatre, the genesis of our radio station. Regular input into the design of the subdivisions and the trail system and The renovation of our historical downtown area
I have an I will stand up and fight for the residents needs and rights. We need strong local bylaws in place to preserve our trees and our heritage and maintain the integrity of our older neighborhoods, our small-town character as mandated in our secondary plan.
The residents do not need an administration, with financial ties to the developers. I have not and I will not accept donations from large corporations who do business with the town. The citizens need someone who owes nothing and can think for himself. A fresh set of eyes, unencumbered by previous commitments.
WHY DO DEVELOPERS BANKROLL INCUMBENTS OR FORMER INCUMBENTS????
