Ge­orge MacDon­ald to re­of­fer for Dist. 9 in mu­nic­i­pal elec­tion

Cape Breton Post - - NEWS -

GLACE BAY — Ge­orge MacDon­ald, deputy mayor and Dist. 9 Coun., will be re­of­fer­ing in the up­com­ing mu­nic­i­pal elec­tion. A re­tired ed­u­ca­tor af­ter 36 years, MacDon­ald served eight years on the school board and the past eight as coun­cil­lor. MacDon­ald cred­its his suc­cess in mu­nic­i­pal pol­i­tics to us­ing the same skills he used in guid­ance: be­ing ac­ces­si­ble, ap­proach­able, hon­est and treat­ing ev­ery res­i­dent's prob­lem — no mat­ter how big or small — as his own. MacDon­ald de­scribes the next four years in the CBRM as to be “ex­cit­ing and chal­leng­ing.” “Ex­cit­ing be­cause of the large projects like Port devel­op­ment, cruise ter­mi­nal ex­pan­sion, Donkin mine and many more that will stress eco­nomic devel­op­ment which is so badly needed,” he said. “Chal­leng­ing be­cause in Dis­trict 9 we have mas­sive in­fra­struc­ture prob­lems. Now with ap­par­ent fi­nan­cial Fed­eral fund­ing af­ter the re­cent bud­get and Pro­vin­cial col­lab­o­ra­tion I can see light at the end of the tun­nel.”
