CFN – Mark A MacDonald kicked off the end of the nomination period for council candidates by holding a presser at City Hall about what he’s describing as his 4 Step Certification Process which seems to be a device to unite council towards improving the city.
Below he has released Step 1 which he is hoping other candidates sign and endorse.
Mr. MacDonald is seeking a return to council after his run against Bob Kilger for Mayor in the last election.
“4 STEP CERTIFICATION PROCESS”
CORNWALL Ontario – It’s time to put all the issues that plagued the last Council behind us. We need a strong new Council that’s focused on common goals and works together as a team and it starts with the candidates.
The loss of our General Hospital and the chemical tanks on our waterfront were huge setbacks for the City of Cornwall, we need a new Council that has a clear agenda.
Recently our City Council voted in favour of a massive pay increase and attention centered on having qualified candidates. After consulting with the various stakeholders a “4 Step Certification Process” has been developed.
Step #1 is attached and I encourage people to stay informed and support the candidate of your choice.
OBJECTIVE: MORE HELP FOR PORT THEATRE
DISCUSSION: –14 Vacant stores Montreal Rd.
-Millions in grant money denied east end
-Arts and Culture
-The chemical tanks on our waterfront were forced upon us without city permits yet a small business like the Port Theatre is being bogged down with red tape.
RESOLVE: A new Council will recognize the Port Theatre as a building that is historically significant and we will work with the Port to obtain the required capacity they need for LCBO events.
