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.
