Coun­cil Can­di­date Pro­files 2018 De­nis Carr Ellen Crothers Pa­trick Dus­sault

Seaway News - - Election 2018 - Brent Charles

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.
