A letter to the citizens of District 1, Waverley-Fall River-Musquodoboit Valley.
Neighbours, friends and residents: June 27th, 2016
I am writing you today to re-introduce myself and let you know that I have decided to offer my name as a candidate for the position of Halifax Regional Councillor here in District 1, Waverley-Fall River-Musquodoboit Valley.
As a local businessman and a former councillor I returned to the private sector four years ago. Since that time, I have focused on my family and the management of our companies here in Atlantic Canada. Employing many local people and creating opportunities. Now, I am in a position to step back from the daily activities of the business.
During my absense from elected office, I have remained active in the community. Gaining knowledge through communication, listening to your concerns and supporting issues that are important all of us.
Now with a fresh perspective and a positive outlook, combined with over 25 years business experience, including 13 years as a former member of council, I am prepared to be your new councillor here in District 1, offering strong, effective representation at Halifax City Hall.
I believe these are very important times here in HRM. With the recent exodus of several top level staff members, including the C.A.O., I feel the municipality is volatile and at risk of losing focus. With new federal funding, it will be imperative that priority be given to infrastucture projects that will benefit District 1. It is now time to return control of City Hall to the people, you the taxpayers.
I know how government works and how to get results. With a solid track record, a common sense approach and a proven ability, I will continue to consult with residents and be a full time councillor. I will provide effective leadership, both locally in our communities and as your voice at City Hall.
On October 15, I respectfully ask for your support.
