Thank you wholeheartedly Tecumseh for your support in Monday's municipal election. I was positively astounded by the level of support that you have given me and I look forward to contributing my skills, knowledge and experience in municipal government to provide an oversight ability, customer service and advocacy that is second to none.
AndrewDowie.ca is here to stay as a constituency portal. Once I join Council in December, you will be able to find information about upcoming decisions and considerations. I would very much like to receive your feedback on these issues, as well as your own, on this site. Don't be shy, and make sure that you take advantage of the comments section.
In the meantime, this site will undergo some cosmetic changes as it evolves to a constituency portal so that it is ready and online in December. You may see links appear and disappear during the testing process. In addition to this site, you can reach me at @Andrew_Dowie, facebook.com/andrewdowie or call me at 519-962-8832. Please do be in touch with what's on your mind.
I had never really thought about how frustrating it would be to have an election going on and not be able to be a part of it before.
Like most of you, I have yet to receive my voting kit. It is expected to arrive at the remaining doorsteps before Tuesday. If you are still without by Tuesday, you may visit Town Hall to secure new credentials. Town staff are on hand there to assist.
In the meantime I will be watching my own mailbox with eager anticipation. I look forward to seeing you at the Tecumseh Legion on Monday night beginning at 7pm for the Meet the Candidates night.
