|Candidate name||Citizen Engagement|
"I have consistently been a proactive advocate and successful lobbyist for many beneficial causes. Whether representing working women through the Business & Professional Women of Canada & Greater Sudbury dealing with issues from affordable day care to pay equity; campaigning for a strong voice for the Greater Sudbury Watershed Alliance or supporting parent groups over school closures, I have a strong voice that is respectfully heard and can make a difference.
One of my campaign priorities is promoting easier and more readily available city funding for citizen groups with a project need. This program would replace the controversial Healthy Community Initiative Fund (ie Councillor ‘Slush Fund’). This new funding for active citizen groups will allow those with healthy community projects, expedient access to proper funding supported by their Councillor. The budget for HCIF monies currently exists – the streamlined process to get the funds would however be greatly improved for citizen groups."
