SUMMARY: A wise head who was perhaps slowing down a bit, was the feeling among panelists. ‘‘A good voice on amalgamation considerations’’ and ‘‘a wealth of experience who has the wider community at heart’’ were two comments, but it was also thought Douglas was often pushing his own agenda. Received poor marks for being reactive, rather than proactive. First elected: 1998 in the Western ward.
Responsibilities: chairman of the audit and risk subcommittee, property subcommittee and regional review subcommittee.
Total salary: $32,600
Meeting attendance: 78.4%
Social media: No Facebook or Twitter presence. SUMMARY A genuine star in the making in local politics, according to panelists, she is highly accessible and has a willingness to work hard. Two panelists had not heard of her. ‘‘She represents her community and with her presence on social media, I get the feeling she is an open book and a good person,’’ one panelist said. ‘‘Puts herself out there and has her heart in the right place,’’ another said. The feeling was that Ford should look to step up her responsibilities if she returns in 2016.
