My name is Jason Setnyk and I am running for City Council in Cornwall
Ontario. The municipal election is on Monday October 25th 2010. First
I would like to introduce myself, and then I would like to share my
vision of Cornwall Ontario with you. I also want to hear from you, and
my email address is below.
I grew up in Cornwall Ontario. I graduated St. Joseph’s Secondary
School, and then attended the University of Ottawa. I graduated with
three Bachelor of Arts degrees, in Honours English , Honours History,
and Education. I now teach English and Social Sciences at the Ontario
Hockey Academy, a private school located here in Cornwall Ontario. I
sometimes work as a freelance journalist. I also volunteer, I am the
founder and event co-ordinator of Rock for Charity, which raises money
each month for different charities and non profit organizations. My
hobbies include writing, photography, exercise, and music. I am
married, my wife and I have a house here, and Cornwall is our home. I
think Cornwall is a great place, but I want to help make Cornwall
become an even better city! I am ready to work on City Council to
achieve these goals!
Here is my platform to help make Cornwall an even better city:
-More job growth and a diverse economy – including good paying jobs
-Update and expand incentives for job creation and businesses that go green
-Cut the red tape, especially for new businesses starting up in Cornwall
-Long term municipal planning, with clear goals and objectives
-Affordable City Transit to help make Cornwall a more green city
-More bicycle stands along Montreal Road and other high traffic areas.
-Investigate the possibility of getting a University in Cornwall.
-Stronger funding for local sports, arts and culture, especially for youth
-More outreach programs to reduce narcotics use and help reduce crime
-Promote more infant daycares spots for mothers
-Work with the Cornwall Police and residents to help keep our streets
clean and safe
-Resolution that City Council cannot vote themselves more than a 1%
raise in a year
Serving the constituents of Cornwall Ontario would be both a privilege
and an honour. I hope to earn your vote. I am here to listen to what
you have to say. I want to make Cornwall an even better place to live.
My platform above is just the beginning, I will listen to what the
people of Cornwall have to say.
