So it begins today, on July 11th, 2014. The name of Andrew Dowie will be on the municipal election ballot for the October 25, 2014 election.
Who is Andrew Dowie?
The short answer is that Andrew Dowie believes in public service, and has the skills and knowledge to play a strong part in improving our community.
Over the next few months, you'll find me on your doorstep. It will be my opportunity to listen, to learn more about your issues, and find out from you how the future of Tecumseh should look like. It will also be my opportunity to introduce myself, my skills, my knowledge, and offer my own vision for Tecumseh.
This vision for the Town, and for Ward 1 in particular, is one of going back to our roots and building upon them. We have some great assets in Ward 1 that can be leveraged for economic development, including the untapped potential of our Tecumseh Road corridor. We have a history of successfully partnering with municipalities to reduce the number of unused assets and make better use of the resources that we have. I'd like to explore new options where this might work as a start to offsetting some of the tax increases that we've experienced in recent years. We can achieve growth and vibrancy, as well as gain commercial services closer to home, by seeking an accommodating, accessible and walkable business district right here in Ward 1.
I am excited for the opportunity to present my candidacy and look forward to meeting you soon. Please check this site as well as my social media channels often for updates as I intend to keep you informed throughout the campaign. Until next time, have a great day and enjoy the great weather!
