Four More in Cornwall Ontario Council Race, Jim Marshall, Todd Bennett, Claude Poirier and Leslie O’Shaughnessy – September 10, 2010

Cornwall ON – You can add four more names to the ranks of nominees for City Council in Cornwall Ontario.

Thursday was a busy day at City Hall as Jim Marshall (pictured left) former councilor and Liberal Riding President Claude Poirier, Todd Bennett, and another former councilor Leslie O’Shaughnessy threw their hats into the race.

People have until today to put their names forward to run for city council, school board trustee, or mayor for the October 25th elections.

It should be interesting to see which names are added to the list today.   We will be resetting our poll tonight and you’ll be able to cast your opinions.      We will also be doing profiles of all the candidates and inviting them to participate in our mini debates on our Political Round Table radio show Tuesday mornings from 9AM on Seawayradio.com

I am pleased to have my name stand for election to Cornwall City Council. I am a property owner and resident of Cornwall, debt and favour free, beholding only to the electors of Cornwall. I ask nothing from the city – not a new chair, not a laptop, not a Blackberry, nothing – and should I gain a seat on council, I will return my salary to a charitable group in the community. I am not running for office in traditional fashion, and will not be campaigning or spending to sway voters. I offer only to represent the best intentions… Read more »

Perhaps the readership of the Cornwall Free News could look over this draft of answers to questions posed by the Cornwall Chamber of Commerce and give a critique …go ahead I can take it. 1. Why do you want to be Councillor for the City of Cornwall? The City of Cornwall doesn’t need another councillor but, the People of Cornwall do. That councillor could be me. The City of Cornwall has been serving itself, to the detriment of city residents and business. The sale of outlying city owned land for a government call centre despite the availability of privately offered… Read more »

Jim Marshall, you have my vote any day! Finally, someone well spoken, that stands for something, and critical thinking involved.. I still say they should start teaching critical thinking at a much earlier age then they do, but all for you! Finally someone putting it down the way I want to see it! It’s a breath of relief, I just hope you hold up to it all! 😉

Thank you, and to any and all that see me out and about, don’t be shy to introduce yourself. If you have a number one gripe, or even better (much much better), a suggestion or solution that addresses a community issue, I’d like to hear it, and I’d like to see where it’s coming from. And that’s not politicking. So often on the CFN forum, and even on the S-F’s, I’ll see a point of view or angle that never occurred to me — that changes my own perspective, and reminds me not just that there is more than one… Read more »
