OTHER CANDIDATES ONLY
* As a patent agent have developed the skills to assess clearly each issue and do the appropriate research to ensure that the most beneficial outcome is realized from each endeavour. * Regional Council needs and deserves representation that will both promote and protect their interests and ensure that they receive their fair share * Decision to modify the salary of Councillors. Believe the salary should represent work effort for the City. Suggest the recommendation of the review committee could have been more closely followed. * Presently serve as Treasurer for the Rotary Club of Heart Lake and Director of the Brampton Community Service Foundation * From time to time new thoughts, ideas and concepts are required to make an enterprise successful; by bringing a fresh perspective to Regional Council I will be able to ensure that decisions are not made because “that’s the way we have always done things”.
* Ensuring that regional costs are not inappropriately downloaded to Brampton * Ensuring that the voice of Brampton citizens is heard at Regional Council * Ensuring that the citizens of Brampton receive their fair share of regional programs including but not restricted to infrastructure and services * Promotion of and protecting of the interests of the citizens of Brampton rather than having decisions affecting the City of Brampton directed by representatives from Mississauga
* The Rose Theatre has added significantly to the stature of Brampton as a progressive community. The facility represents the history of Brampton yet introduces the latest in theatre construction concepts and beauty. I have not only toured the facility but have attended several events at The Rose Theatre. * Development of high density residences in the downtown core needs to be carefully considered to ensure that the ambiance that is Brampton is not lost in a metropolitan style environment. Other levels should restrict their involvement in urban planning to those issues in which direct impact on services provided by the other levels of government would be directly impacted. * Brampton’s rate of expansion has exceeded its ability to develop and support the necessary infrastructure. Therefore, I support the recent cap on new development. * The service most lacking in Brampton is an adequate transportation infrastructure necessary to sustain the growth in our community. * As mentioned, the lack of a transportation infrastructure necessary to support the growth of Brampton has resulted in a negative impression of our community by both local residents and visitors. Clearly the issue of funding for public transit needs to be addressed along with the integration of pubic transit with services of neighbouring communities. * Brampton is uniquely positioned to attract business because we are centrally located to major road services, Highway 410, Highway 407, Highway 401, to air transport via Pearson International Airport and via rail. * Brampton could further itself in attracting corporate investment by focusing on the immense talent pool available in the community to assume the jobs created through investment in the community. * I have chosen to get involved in the political process because of a deep concern that recent changes in the structure of Regional Council would result in decisions being made by Mississauga yet would have a significant impact on Brampton the impact of which may not have been adequately represented. * Brampton means a safe community where one can raise a family and participate fully in social, sports and cultural events.
