I am running for the councillor position in Division 8.
I have live in this county for 45 years and am now retired. I feel that I can devote the time needed to being the best councillor I can be by listening to the voters in division 8 and taking your concerns to council and getting answers for you.
Questions and Answers from municipal forum:
1. Which do you favor - provincial police or RCMP?
I am in favor of provincial police so that we can be more self sufficient like Ontario, Quebec,
Newfoundland and Labrador but the costs need to be looked at.
2. Do you know how we can get better broadband for rural customers?
I am not familiar with this problem as it pertains to the County but I think it should be
outsourced to the companies that already offer it.
3. What is your position on rec funding for smaller towns?
I am in favor of rec funding. I believe there is money set aside by the County for it. In these
slow economic times there is only so much fundraising small towns can do.
4. What is your position on HALO?
I am in favor of giving money to HALO, but can we afford it? I believe the County already gives
money to both STARS and HALO, maybe a larger portion should go to HALO considering where
our County residents live in relation to being accessed more easily by HALO.
5. What is your position on the proposal to extend the walking path?
I think we need to evaluate the cost of extending the walkway to Lake Newell Resort and how
many County residents would actually use it.
