Top 3 issues facing your municipality and its residents that council has control or major influence over: Tourism, customer service and taxes
Your solutions/approach to those 3 issues:
Tourism: It is extremely necessary to encourage more tourism which is our largest industry by far. I intend to address this issue by working closely with others to improve on how advertising and promoting is done
Customer service: This needs to be improved in the township. I will encourage council to look closely at these services in every department of the township.
Taxes: I believe that encouraging more small development both residentially and commercially is required to help offset these taxes over the next four years
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 property in Ward 1 of Rideau Lakes.
