“I believe that “my personal opinion” should not enter the equation on any vote in Council, by any Councillor. It is the duty of Councillors to represent the wants and needs of their constituents and give them a voice at City Hall. Councillors must be prepared to work with all parties involved to achieve as many of these items as possible.”
“I am prepared to hear what these ideas are and hope to present ideas that have a majority of constituents’ support behind them, on your behalf at the council table.”
“I intend to hold monthly “Ward Hall” meetings at rotating venues around the ward. These informal meetings will offer an opportunity for concerned members of the Ward 2 community to come together and share their views and concerns.”
“Also, once elected, I will convert this website into a place for you, the people of Ward 2, to voice your views about the specific issues and council votes which will arise throughout the next term.”
“The citizens of the Greater of Sudbury, regardless of Ward location, need to be heard to ensure the proper questions, plans and programs can be put into place that represent the needs of all citizens, rather than a few special interests.”

“One idea that I can promise I will implement for our Ward is a new management system for the Healthy Community Initiatives (HCI) Fund. When elected, I will bring in a participatory budgeting system for the HCI of Ward 2. In short, participatory budgeting means that you the people of Ward 2 will put forth and vote on your own proposals for projects that HCI funds could be used to support.”
