☰Tom Marks Central Elgin Candidate for Deputy Mayor
by Tom Marks
With the encouragement and support of many I am excited to return to municipal politics!
My goal is clear; be a valuable member of Central Elgin and the County of Elgin
councils. Everyone tries to come up with catchy phrases but simply I promise to
work hard for all the residents of Central Elgin, show up prepared and keep an open
mind. Working towards reaching a consensus requires teamwork and leadership!
Orderly and proper land development throughout the Municipality
- The confusion and angst among the residents in Port Stanley is evident. Lack of
transparency and proper communication has led to rumours abounding. This needs to
Live streaming of council meetings
- With todays technology we have the ability to see councils in action. This will
allow all the residents to keep up to date on what is happening and be informed.
- I pledge to scrutinize line by line Central Elgin and The County of Elgin budget.
Most people do not realize The County of Elgin takes over 1/3 of your tax dollars!
Education also takes a portion of your tax dollars.
- Both speed and congestion on our roads create problems that need to be addressed!
Vandalism and the increase in crime are concerns as well.
Community Policing Associations
- Port Stanley and Belmont have enjoyed many successes! It definitely needs to be
promoted and established throughout the rest of Central Elgin.
As a life long resident I believe I have the ability to represent the people of
Central Elgin. As a former dairy farmer I can relate to the challenges of modern
day agriculture. Encouraging well planned growth is vital to all of us including
residents and businesses alike. I welcome your suggestions and comments.
