Coun­cil Can­di­date Pro­files 2018 Car­son An­drews Bernie M. Alex de Wit Brunette Claude Poirier

Seaway News - - Election 2018 -

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.
