Ottawa Sun questionnaire

moielecteur
Giving a voter the one-minute pitch.
rog
After the Ottawa Citizen questionnaire it’s the Ottawa Sun’s turn. Jon Willing promised me some space in his “newspaper” (5 questions, 3 sentences per question):
Why are you running?
rickpourri
Rick has 25 years of “experience” as a slick career politician but his recent costly blunders and lame excuses have made a lot of voters angry. It’s time SOMEONE belled the cat! Dishonesty, deceit, corruption, bullying, HORRIBLE misuse of taxpayer funds – the Ottawa Sun only allows me three sentences per question so if you want all the gory details you’ll have to go to my blog bellscorners.wordpress.com.

What is the biggest issue facing the ward?
maguire
The need for democratic reform – we’ll NEVER realize our potential as a city without fair elections, honest politicians and an end to corruption. Fair elections: 1) politicians should NOT be allowed to finance their campaigns with cash from corporations, unions and special interests 2) politicians should NOT campaign or reward their friends with taxpayer funds 3) a small simple change that would make Ottawa’s elections fair and friendly – Ranked Choice Voting (ottawa123.ca).

Are you accepting developer and/or union donations for your campaign?
cand2
I’m not accepting or spending a penny on my campaign. I don’t think that you should be able to spend your way to power with dirty money. The irony is that incumbents already have such a HUGE advantage at election time that they don’t even NEED to take the brown envelopes, so it must be just greed or arrogance.

Who do you consider a role model as a great leader?
hustle
There are many politicians whom I admire, if that’s what you mean. But none of them are perfect, for with power comes temptation, which is why there must be transparency, accountability and, as much as possible, decision-making should be decentralized to the community level where EVERYONE gets a chance to provide REAL input, not just special interest groups looking to line their pockets.

What’s your main vice?
moitaxi
I know that my shtick irritates and even infuriates a lot of people (especially the vested interests that I politely criticize on my “satirical” blog). But sometimes you have to call a spade a spade for the greater community good. I’ll be the first to admit that I have many faults, but look at my three Zero-Means-Zero-Means-Zero promises on my Bells Corners blog bellscorners.wordpress.com and decide for yourself if I’m really as nasty as Team Rick says.

Bill is NOT amused, nor is ex-candidate unelected WECA bigwig Catherine Gardener!
