Moving Port Dalhousie Forward Wolfgang Guembel for City Council



















I will facilitate and support actionable, sustainable development and revitalization of Port Dalhousie.


Issues I know to be Important to Port Dalhousie Ward

  • The ward of Port Dalhousie is much bigger than the corner of Lock & Main, and therefore the issues are varied and not exclusive to the area of Lakeside Park,
  • Heritage buildings, sites, and our history, are important to us,
  • Parks, recreational facilities, and green space are paramount,
  • We are not opposed to paying fair tax.  We ARE opposed to wasting said taxes.  Local government spending needs to be appropriate and sustainable,
  • We love our community and believe in making it stronger by making our own meaningful contributions,


Benefits to You

When you elect me to City Council you will benefit from having a councilor who:

  • Recognizes that Port Dalhousie is an important part of the City of Catharines and the City is vital to the Region.  I believe our problem solving must be considerate of our role in the bigger picture,
  • Can appreciate multiple sides of an issue and who can remain objective in problem solving,
  • Is committed to making a better connection between the decision making at City Hall and the real life issues of people living in St. Catharines,
  • Is educated in leadership and policy with over 10 years experience,
  • Is an environmental engineer with experience and understanding of sustainable development and environmental protection,
  • Is a certified teacher skilled in educating others and fostering cooperation,
  • Can relate to the needs of families, employees, and entrepreneurs,
