Citizen questionaire (all candidates)
I’m running as an anti-politician on a ZERO-means-ZERO-means-ZERO platform. My first promise is I will spend ZERO money on my campaign and I will accept ZERO salary/pension/perks once elected.
That’s a savings of $500,000 annually for the taxpayer.
I’m taking over where Earl McRae of the Ottawa Sun left off.
Some may consider my campaign a big joke (myself included), but I have some VERY serious points to make, especially on electoral reform:
1) councillors should NOT accept donations from corporations and unions
3) community associations should be transparent, accountable and NOT used for personal financial gain (and certainly NOT creations of the councillor!)
Corruption and bullying is BAD, even when done by elected officials and high-ranking City bureaucrats.
I will make a detailed case that Rick Chiarelli has blundered badly, has NOT told the truth, has wasted TONS of tax dollars, and does NOT deserve re-election.
Stay tuned for more electoral promises!

Here are a few more promises in response to a request from the Ottawa Food Policy Council:
I PROMISE to actively engage with the community on decisions related to food at the municipal level.
I PROMISE to ensure a food lens will be used in City planning to assess equitable access to Good Food in all relevant growth, environment, and development plans.
I PROMISE to consider neighbourhood access to Good Food in all new development applications, zoning and by-law amendments, and social services/community planning.
I PROMISE to champion sustained funding for initiatives that ensure Good Food exists for all, economic development focused on food and farming, and the use of a Good Food lens for planning and policies.
But before committing any tax dollars to these excellent initiatives I would have to make sure that the residents of College Ward agree.
Don’t you LOVE community gardens?
This is at Bayshore – wish we had something similar in Bells Corners.
