Council Candidate Profiles 2018 Ryan Acheson Eric Bergeron Kelly Bergeron Carol (Escobar) Boileau
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.
