Why Vote For Me?
Building a better Milton comes with an extensive list of items, here are a few that I plan to tackle ↓
Milton’s new neighbourhoods need very careful planning with a commitment to affordability and a mix of housing types, retail spaces and commercial development to support and sustain the future of our town. Affordable living spaces for young people and young families is a must as is affordable housing and services for seniors. Milton can lead the GTA if we consider practical housing solutions to meet the requirements of an age-diverse population that will keep our community vibrant. My skills and experience in construction-project-management will make me an asset on Milton town council. I believe new development in town must consider the needs of young families, seniors, and entrepreneurs. At all times proper infrastructure and amenities must accompany any growth.
My ideas include widening roads especially on main arteries to facilitate the town’s growth and avoid traffic issues and gridlock.
Speeding is a major concern for residents in town and in our ward. I will be an active advocate for improved control measures including additional signage, digital monitoring systems and additional enforcement.
Improved road services is a concern for Milton residents, specifically in the winter. I will advocate for efficient snow removal with the side streets included in the snow removal schedule.
Retail Expansion, Employment opportunities, Milton Education Village, Recreation
A growing population needs education and job opportunities. I will advocate for business-friendly policies that will attract new companies and facilitate the growth of commercial enterprises that are currently here. Expanding Milton’s retail sector will not only compliment local business owners but will also bring 1000’s of employment opportunities for our residents! As a town councillor, I will be an advocate for encouraging retailers to locate here (e.g., COSTCO). Milton needs a state-of-the-art modern retail mall.
Investing in our future generation is the best thing we can do to grow both as a town and community. I am committed to accelerate the momentum for the plans to build the Milton Education Village that include campuses of both Wilfrid Laurier University and Conestoga College. Post-secondary education in town will facilitate affordable higher education opportunities locally for the 100,000+ young people that currently live here in Milton.
A strong community must consider places for recreation and community activities that reflect the needs and demographics of the community it serves. I will advocate for mixed use recreational and community centres including a cricket ground with floodlights.
CN-Railway Intermodal Project
The CN-Railway Intermodal Project, if approved, will include significant changes to traffic routes and infrastructure, as well as potential impacts on air quality and noise levels.
This project will have negative impacts on the community, environment and health of local residents.
The CN Intermodal project is opposed by many members of the Milton community and I will continue to oppose it.
