Elliot Lake candidate Tammy Van Roon
my name is tammy Van roon and i am seeking a second term on council. i have been a proud resident of Elliot lake for 20 years and enjoyed raising both of my sons in this amazing community. i am a city councillor, a real estate broker, a member of the Canadian armed Forces as a CIC officer and actively involved in the community.
no single councillor can promise to undertake any change without the support of the majority of voting members. While it is important to consider a councillor’s stance on current issues - it is important to note that the issues over a four-year term will change. i am a representative who takes the time to read and understand all materials, who openly listens to the opinions and concerns expressed by the other councillors and the community, and most importantly consider the potential consequences and impact of decisions that are made; along with how provincial and federal law effects those decisions.
i also am of the firm belief that it is important for our community leaders to display a measure of decorum and respect toward one another, and to work together as a team toward the goals that council as a whole has set. i also believe that it is important for councillors to be clear on their reasoning behind decisions as opposed to voting with no explanation, that we cannot know everything and at times we need to rely on the knowledge of others, including one another.
Each resident in our community is valuable, income levels, age and employment status do not affect your importance and value as a resident of Elliot lake. We must continue to keep our entire demographic in mind during the decision-making process. Want to know more? Feel free to e-mail me at tammyforcouncil2@ gmail.com .
