When candidates say that they intend to keep in touch with their constituents, it is necessary to identify a particular strategy.

For me there are a number of very specific initiatives that I intend to pursue.

 

  1. I will make sure that we have two strong Community Action Networks in operation. One for Valley East and the other for the Sudbury section of Ward 5.

  2. I will make every attempt to revise the Neighbourhood Playground Associations in Ward 5. That means I will help organize public meetings in each playground catchment area in order to see if we can find volunteers willing to act as the driving force behind these associations. I will also utilize the Playground Associations to obtain feedback about what is needed in order to improve the local neighbourhoods. I will demonstrate to the local residents that volunteering with the local neighbourhood playground association is more than just busy work. It is a way of making a huge difference in the community and I, for one, will listen to their input and provide them with whatever assistance I can.

  3. I will hold regular Town Hall meetings at local schools or the public library and invite residents to come out to discuss specific topics of concern. My plan is to hold at least one of these town hall meetings every three months.

  4. I will continue communicate with the residents of Ward 5 through Facebook and the internet. People will always be able to get hold of me.

  5. I will continue to host a weekly radio show at Laurentian University and invite people to call in with their concerns and opinions. These Radio Shows will include special guests who will be able ot shed light on some of the underlying principles behind the issues facing City Council. The Radio Shows will be video taped and archived so that people can access them on demand.

  6. I will use You Tube to produce short informational video explanations for my constituents similar to what I have done with the issues on this web site.
