John Matheson Municipal Election Candidate Profile
My name is John Matheson and I am running for Councillor in the Drummond Ward.
I was born and lived most of my life in Drummond Twp. I have recently retired and feel that I now have the available time and energy required to be a positive and productive member of council. With several of the current council members stepping down recently, I felt that this was the perfect opportunity to get involved in this council.
I believe it is very important for council to be financially responsible as well as keeping taxes at a reasonable rate, all while keeping the constituent best interests in mind. By promoting Drummond as a great place to live, work, and play we should be able to increase our tax base, all while employing proper planning and development practices. If elected, I will work hard every day to maintain and improve our infrastructure, all while keeping a close eye on spending to ensure that townships money is spent in a fiscally responsible manner.
Drummond has always had great relationships with our neighboring communities in regards to sharing recreational facilities such as the hockey rinks, sports fields, parks etc. Maintaining these relationships should be a priority of this council, in order to continue providing the great and improving quality of life to the residents of this great township. It has always been very important to me that I be straight forward and fair with people. I will be the same with not only with my fellow councillors and Twp. Employees but with the taxpayers as well, whom I will represent to the best of my ability.
I ask for your support in the upcoming election
