Initiative 9

Creating a Collaborative Economy

“A municipality does not operate in isolation. We are regulated by and receive funding from the Province. We must act in concert with the province in order to create seamless and strong education, health services, infrastructure for our citizens. Increased communication and collaboration is paramount. As active partners in the Capital Region, we will create win-win solutions – solutions that are good for the County and for the region; solutions that enable all communities to thrive.”

Within the first 90 days, I will work with Council to implement the following plans:

  1. Meet with our three MLAs to advocate and lobby for priorities. (e.g. hospital and courthouse.) Establish a regular meeting schedule for Council with our MLA’s.
  2. Schedule a joint Council--School Boards meeting to review issues and opportunities. ( use of schools.) Establish a schedule for quarterly meetings.
  3. Meet with all adjacent municipal Mayors following the election to discuss future growth and collaboration opportunities.
