Be­ing born and raised in Corn­wall I have a deep love for this city. How­ever, City Coun­cil is about more than just a love for Corn­wall, it’s about build­ing a com­mu­nity that we can all be proud to live in. Times are chang­ing, and City Coun­cil needs some newer, younger blood. With a back­ground in busi­ness and pol­i­tics, I can be a new voice for the peo­ple of this city. If elected I will fight for in­vest­ments in arts & cul­ture, for Coun­cil to be more ac­ces­si­ble through town hall meet­ings, and sav­ings in the bud­get with­out un­nec­es­sar­ily cut­ting ser­vices.

I have spent my ca­reer cre­at­ing in­no­va­tive com­pa­nies. Four years ago I started Smart Greens where we grew plants in ship­ping con­tain­ers. Our com­pany at­tracted at­ten­tion from around the globe and put Corn­wall at the fore­front of agri­cul­tural tech­nol­ogy.

I’m an in­no­va­tor and Corn­wall needs to take a gi­ant leap for­ward if we are to be­come the city we all want it to be. Imag­ine what could be done in the next 4 years …

We can do bet­ter Corn­wall. Nous pou­vons faire mieux, Corn­wall.

Hi, I’m Kelly Berg­eron. I’m run­ning for Corn­wall City Coun­cil and here’s why:

I be­lieve that we can do more to cre­ate eco­nomic growth in our city. I am the Ex­ec­u­tive Di­rec­tor of the Corn­wall In­no­va­tion Cen­tre, where we are ded­i­cated to grow­ing lo­cal, and in­nov a t i ve start-ups.

Through pro­vin­cial fund­ing, we are build­ing the On­tario Emerg­ing Jobs In­sti­tute, an ed­u­ca­tional in­sti­tu­tion launch­ing ad­mis­sions this fall in Corn­wall.

If elected I would use my ex­pe­ri­ence to grow jobs, en­sure the City’s rev­enue is spent wisely, sup­port the art cen­tre fundrais­ing ini­tia­tives and push to de­velop our wa­ter­front, which is the key to Corn­wall’s fu­ture.

I am thrilled to be run­ning as a can­di­date for Corn­wall City Coun­cil and am look­ing for­ward to dis­cussing the is­sues af­fect­ing our city. Thank you! Kelly Berg­eron

I’m Carol Boileau, re­tired sec­ondary Math, FSL and lit­er­acy teacher since 1981. I have lived and worked in Corn­wall all of my life. Presently I am in a wheel­chair, thus ac­ces­si­bil­ity is­sues are a pri­or­ity to me. I am on three City com­mit­tees, in­clud­ing the Ac­ces­si­bil­ity, Her­itage and Se­nior Friendly Com­mit­tees, and I’m also a board mem­ber for the com­mu­nity’s French ra­dio sta­tion. Be­sides ac­ces­si­bil­ity, I will fo­cus on the city’s bud­get by de­bat­ing is­sues while en­cour­ag­ing the best for cit­i­zens. On Oct. 22, I ask for your vote in or­der to be City Coun­cil­lor.
