Cornwall ON – Cornwall Ontario City Councilor André Rivette has announced he’s running again.
Today, I have submitted my papers to stand for re-election as Councillor for the City of Cornwall.
If elected, I will continue to address community concerns and bring new ideas to the Council table such as:
1) encourage the new council to continue promoting partnerships between the city and companies looking to bring good paying jobs to Cornwall
2) propose the creation of a task force between the City and Hospital Board to address the Long Term Care Crisis in our community
3) oversee the completion of projects such as the 3+1 project, the new secondary treatment plant and other ongoing projects and to be sure they are completed within their approved budget and on time
4) I would also like to see the continuation of upgrades to park facilities such as a splash pad at Menard Park and make use of the Bob Turner facility as a new home for the football program.We must continue to FOCUS ON THE FUTURE!!
