Andrew Roy Tennant Municipal Election Candidate Profile

Name: Andrew Roy Tennant

Municipality: Carleton Place

Position Sought: Councillor

Currently Retired or Working (where?): Working.  Stonemason. Owner of Castle Masonry and Construction

Former Elected Positions/Terms if applicable: None

Top 3 issues facing your municipality and its residents that council has control or major influence over:

1. Ensuring responsible infrastructure and population growth.

2. Actively promoting our town as a place to live, work and visit.

3. Maintaining a low tax rate while still providing a high level of service.

Your solutions/approach to those 3 issues:

1. Addressing responsible growth requires councillors who are able to maintain a common sense approach to building our community on a project by project basis.   I would put careful consideration into all potential new infrastructure.

2. I have always been very vocal about our town having a bigger role in marketing itself in various media formats.  This would help promote local tourism as well as encourage people to see us as a great place to buy a home or start a business.

3. I am always aware of the detrimental effect a tax increase could have on our household budgets.

Do you own (or have a stake in) or operate a commercial/industrial business in your municipality? (Including vacant development lands or rental units): I own and operate a construction business “Castle Masonry and Construction” which is based in Carleton Place.
