Councillor candidates cont.

1. The most important issue appears to be around transparency and accountability.  It seems like there is a greater amount of chatter around this than fiscal responsibility and water treatment.
2.  I have 16 years senior admin experience with eight as the director of education. 
I have worked to earn the trust of the community as well as the education ministries in both provinces.  The bi-provincial experience will certainly be helpful given the city’s bi-provincial status.
3.  The City’s infrastructure is the most important priority.  Water treatment is a must. There needs to be a rolling five year fiscally responsible plan.
4. City council and admin need to meet regularly with both provinces at every opportunity to ensure they understand the nature of the Lloydminster Charter. 
Any perception that we are double dipping or that we get more because of our status must be eliminated. 
Each province needs to be aware of their responsibilities to serve their share and not be overlooked because the other province is probably taking care of it. 
As director, this was a key part of my role to ensure I was up to speed with both provinces and enjoyed their trust and respect.
5. I have reached out directly to different groups asking for their support,
There are key individuals in the community who bring out voters. 
Having a presence by advertising, and making direct connections helps awareness which leads to interest and commitment.
