What past candidates have told me over the years is true. It is an absolutely worthwhile experience to run for municipal council, win or lose. Since my declaration on Friday, I have met some truly inspiring and terrific people; engaging, warm, and neighbourly. The goodwill at the doors and the generosity of friends and colleagues in supporting my campaign has been far beyond what I could have ever expected.
You will find me out in your neighbourhood at some point over the next several weeks. I look forward to meeting you directly and to learning about what the future of our town should look like. You will hear from me of my 12 years of direct experience working in municipal government and delivering the same municipal services that the town provides and my vision and ideas of how I'd like to see the town grow and prosper. You'll also hear of my volunteer involvement: Chairing the Windsor-Essex Chapter of Professional Engineers Ontario, my role as a leader with the 35th Tecumseh Scout Group, and my appointments to the Tecumseh Committee of Adjustment and Property Standards Committee.
I also want to give a shout out of thanks to all of the candidates running for the various positions in town. Whomever among us are elected, we're all seeking a bright future for our community and that is something that can and ought to be celebrated.
I'll be visiting you soon, so keep an eye out.
Voting in Tecumseh will take place between October 17th and October 27th by phone and internet. Take a few minutes to use the new Voter Lookup tool to confirm that you're on the voters list.
Voterlookup.ca lets you:
* confirm the accuracy of your elector information;
* update your information where incorrectly recorded; and/or,
* add a name to the enumeration so that it is correctly recorded for municipal and school board voting purposes.
* voterlookup.ca cannot process requests concerning persons who are under 18 years of age on Election Day (October 27 2014).
If you have any difficulty with the VoterLookup.ca process, please contact the campaign and we'd be happy to help you out.
