WE LIVE IN THE BEST COMMUNITY...
Our neighbourhoods are wonderfully diverse. The City of Ottawa has the lowest unemployment rate in 40 years. We have precious green spaces and thriving small businesses. Our neighbours give back to our community through volunteering and helping one another. We have an opportunity with the new LRT to re-envision declining shopping malls into modern town squares.
... WE CAN MAKE IT EVEN BETTER
We need to ensure that families have affordable child care and children have safe spaces to play and learn; youth have opportunities for networking and good jobs; seniors can stay in their homes longer without unexpected increases in their property taxes and with access to the services they need; the Ottawa Police have the resources they need to keep us safe; and that we eliminate poverty, homelessness, and racism; provide supports for those with mental health challenges and make City Hall accessible and reflective of our whole community.
DON WILL LISTEN TO YOU TO FIND SOLUTIONS
Don is a successful local entrepreneur who knows how to negotiate and who will fight for the programs and infrastructure that we need. He will bring his business background to City Hall. That means spending our money wisely so that we have more for priorities like housing, child care and recreational infrastructure.
Don wants the City to provide better services to residents. He will fight for common sense solutions, such as more lighting at night at sports fields so that youth have activities to keep them out of trouble; making sure snowplows can not put more snow in your driveway than the height of an average snowblower; weekly garbage collection in summer months; and solving the problems that impact YOU every day.
Vote for Don on Friday October 12th!
If you live in a large apartment complex, the polls will be in your building. For everyone else, vote at Michele Heights Community Centre (2955 Michele Drive) between 10am-8pm.
If you need a ride or a babysitter or further information, call 613-820-1845.
Advanced polls are also open October 4-7 10am-8pm at Ben Franklin Place, City Hall, François Dupuis Recreation Centre, Greensboro Community Centre, Richcraft Recreation Complex and Minto Recreation Complex.
Thursday (August 23rd) is the first day under municipal bylaws that you can put up an election lawn sign for the October 22nd election. This is the best way to show your support for Don.
Order your lawn sign today by clicking here! And tell your neighbours!
Have coffee with Don Dransfield every Friday
Don wants to hear from you! Don will be at the Tim Hortons at 993 Richmond road every Friday from 6:00 to 7:00pm. Join him for an informal coffee chat to discuss your ideas for Bay Ward. This weekly coffee hour is a commitment he is making to the residents of Bay Ward as something he will continue to do weekly if he is elected as your City Councillor. It is important to Don that residents have an opportunity to be heard and that he continue to be accessible to those he will represent. Please bring your friends and join Don for coffee on Friday!
