Council Candidate Profiles 2018 Denis Carr Ellen Crothers Patrick Dussault
My name is Denis Carr and I am running for city councilor in October. I love this city. I live here, my family lives here and I want to see us continue to progress.
I have more than 20 years of experience as your city councillor. During this time, I have focused on strengthening Cornwall and preparing it for change. One example of this was helping to form Heart of the City, a revitalization program that has seen 228 applications approved and $67.2 million in physical improvements to our city. Heart of the City’s brownfield revitalization program has resulted in 29 applications totaling nearly $50 million in physical improvements to our community. I have played a significant role in this kind of progress.
I want to work with you to continue to make Cornwall a better place. I need and appreciate your support in this next election.
Hello, I am a Cornwall tax payer of 20 plus years, have worked for 30 plus years in technology and 10 plus years as an instructor at NCTI. I am fed up with wasteful municipal spending. Say no to $5 million Art Center, no to runaway police spending, RFP to OPP. Say yes to Sunday bus service and local cannabis store fronts. I campaign to review all municipal managers responsibilities and performances. The status quo has to go!
My name is Ellen Crothers and I have lived in Cornwall for the past three years. Before that I lived in Lancaster, ON for 15 years. I started a toy drive in Lancaster called Mathew’s Toy Mountain. It raises toys for families in need during the Christmas season. It has been running successfully for the past 12 years.
Some of the positive changes I would like to make are: Lowering taxes and continuing to maintain Cornwall as an affordable place to raise a family. Make our waterfront more attractive to tourists and look into setting up the Seaway Train. The train would connect Cornwall with Montreal and Ottawa.
My name is Patrick Dussault. I will retire from the Ontario Provincial Police after 30 years of service in Oct. 2018 and I am looking forward to serving the citizens of Cornwall as a municipal councillor. I have been living in the area since 1991 and I have gained a reputation of integrity and hard work, while getting involved in the community in several organizations. Some of my goals and objectives include fair contract for municipal employees and city taxpayers upon renewal, and a freeze on salaries of the Mayor, council members and high executives such as the C.A.O. and the G. M. of Corporate Services for the duration of the term.
