Council Candidate Profiles 2018 Carson Andrews Bernie M. Alex de Wit Brunette Claude Poirier
I am seeking your support in the upcoming municipal election.
I am the son of Bruce Cote, a retired police officer with the Cornwall Community Police Service (CCPS), and Colleen Andrews, a retired nurse at the Cornwall Community Hospital (CCH).
After obtaining a Master’s Degree and working for two Federal Cabinet Ministers, I have returned with the passion and determination to further improve my hometown.
There are three pillars to my campaign: Community Development, Economic Growth and Affordability.
For more information on these ideas and how I plan to achieve them, please visit my website, www. Carsonforcouncil. ca or visit my Facebook page. Also, if you wish to request a lawn sign, please feel free to text or call me 613 363 6801, or send me an email carson.mpa@ gmail.com.
I hope I can count on your support!
I was born and raised in Cornwall. I am a former, two term President of the Cornwall Lions Club and you may know me from the funeral profession career spanned of over forty years.
I would like to reestablish communication with OLG and see if we could find a way to bring a first-class casino to our area.
I do not like to cut any City service programs but we need to keep services like grass cutting and cat issues public; be transparent with taxpayer issues.
Let’s take one step at a time to achieve our goals and avoid procrastinating things that upset the taxpayers, such as delayed pay raises.
Taxpayers have entrusted us to oversee daily, City business. Not for the benefit of the City Councillors but for the benefit of the taxpayers.
As a strong advocate for our community, I am seeking your support for seat on Cornwall City Council. I was the Executive Director of the Social Development Council, focussing on employment, poverty reduction, food accessibility and increased access to public services. I now work for Glengarry Inter-agency Group ( GIAG) connecting employers with grants to facilitate employment in our region. My experience also includes a decade’s worth of working for previous and current local MPPS, Jim Brownell and Jim Mcdonnell. I love our city and have the energy, determination and ideas to help make it even better. I believe economic development is the key to prosperity, wellness, better living conditions and more employment opportunities for all.
Of all levels of government, municipal politics is the level with the most direct impact on the lives of its citizens. Municipal Councillors have a critical part in deciding how numerous services are delivered. As a life-long resident of Cornwall, a former member of Council and an active volunteer in local community groups, I believe I have the necessary qualifications, and life experience to bring about positive actions at the Council table. Those who know me will tell you that I always come to the meetings very well prepared to defend the citizens’ interests and that of the City. The only promise I can make is to serve you, the citizens of Cornwall, and I encourage you to vote for the candidates of your choice.
