Elliot Lake can­di­date Tammy Van Roon

The Standard (Elliot Lake) - - ELECTION -

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 .
