Council Candidate Profiles 2018 Claude Mcintosh Mary Jane Proulx
My name is Jack Lindsay, native of Cornwall and locally educated. As a retired plant manager, I have the experience to be an effective and active councillor. If elected, I will advocate for: an infrastructure master plan for the waterfront; sound budgeting; strong Safety; affordable residential development; revitalization of downtowncornwall and Le Village.
My goal is to bring people together to listen to their concerns, to think constructively, and to take action. There are some tough decisions to be taken in the next few years, and I look forward to working diligently to help build a more affordable, sustainable and dynamic Cornwall.
I’m a three-term city councilor with a strong commitment to all things public: parks, services, cultural and recreational opportunities and support for the shared amenities that enhance our quality of life. I am committed to a platform of responsible taxation as the way to protect what we have and respond to opportunities that move the city forward.
As councilor, I will continue to promote progressive policies that build prosperity and security for our community and support steady growth that benefits Cornwall families and businesses, attracting people to our city. Photo provided by Roy Studio.
As a Cornwall native who spent much of a 44-year newspaper career living and working in Cornwall, I have a deep interest in the future of our community which has battled back from the loss of its major manufacturing sector.
During the past four years I represented council on nine committees, one which worked with the Mohawk Council of Akwesasne ( MCA) to acquire the habour lands from the federal government. We also secured $6.5 million to help develop the property. It was the culmination of several years of negotiations and a big step for our ongoing waterfront plans.
The commercial property assessment (revenue) debacle created by MPAC miscalculations and the resulting appeals will burden the next council with unique financial challenges that will require tough decisions while balancing reasonable tax increases with keeping the city moving forward. Council experience will be an asset.
The two pillars of my election platform are the same as in 2014: Responsible representation and commitment.
My name is Mary Jane Proulx and I was born and raised in Cornwall. I work part time as a counsellor for the mentally challenged. I volunteer for Roy and Chers Rescue Farm trapping the feral cats in Cornwall.
My campaign is an awareness campaign for the feral cat situation in Cornwall.
I’ve trapped 75 feral cats in 3 years. I’m the one who is speaking to the people of Cornwall about this problem. And it is a problem.
I’ve organized a feral cat protest September 24th in front of City Hall before a Council meeting. If you don’t attend then you can’t complain!
