2014 – Election Platform Principles

 

 

1. Make Local Government RELEVANT to You

 

Two year City Tax Freeze: While reviewing the entire municipal budget, City taxes should be frozen for two years in order to stabilize spending while using expertise within the public and private sectors to increase efficiency.

 

Accessible and Approachable: I’m a firm believer in direct two-way communication.  You may email or visit me in my store in Port Dalhousie, I’m always happy to discuss issues relevant to our Ward and City.

 

Fiscal Management with Realistic Prudence: As an independent business owner, our first child due in October, and a mortgage I understand budgeting within established limits.  Making realistic spending decisions for both short- and long-term goals is equally relevant to families in Port Dalhouise as the City of St. Catharines.

 

 

Sustainable Policy: government policies should be living documents that can grow and progress with the needs of Port Dalhousie and the City of St. Catharines.  We need to ensure that we continue to protect our families’ health and safety, our culture, history, and our natural environment.  Short-term decision-making should not be made at the cost of our future.


2. Merge Human Capital and Assets

Bring skills and experience from both public and private sector experts to work together:  Port Dalhousie and St. Catharines is home to many talented business and academic people with tremendous knowledge and experience.  When brought together, Port Dalhousie and the City can overcome any challenge, be it fiscal, social, or environmental.

 

Provide an objective voice and perspective in mediating issues specific to Port Dalhousie and the City of St. Catharines: Port Dalhousie and the City of St. Catharines each have projects and issues where either side is entrenched in their opposing views. Mediating sides such that appropriate development, evolution, and preservation, will be crucial in seeing the City move forward.

3. Real Sustainability

All decisions being made by the City need to be realistic today, tomorrow, and the foreseeable future.

 

Sustainable Development: all commercial, recreational, and social developments need to be considerate of budgets, the culture and society of Port Dalhousie and St. Catharines, and the physical environment.  There is a balance that can allow for new developments while still protecting our history, values, and green space.

 

Sustainable Policy: government policies should be living documents that can grow and progress with the needs of Port Dalhousie and the City of St. Catharines.  We need to ensure that we continue to protect our families’ health and safety, our culture, history, and our natural environment.  Short-term decision-making should not be made at the cost of our future.
