After 39 years in the banking industry, I bring considerable experience creating, analysing and implementing budgets, both small and large in nature. We must bring a much more critical and dispassionate eye to our budget process, removed from politics and focused on what’s best for Windsor and it’s tax-paying citizens. If elected I will:
1. Support modest tax increases directed specifically towards infrastructure improvements;
2. Work with my Council colleagues to develop better Community consultations on Budgets;
3. Move to re-evaluate our Debt Reduction plan and Reserve funds to match the goals of increased infrastructure funding;
4. Unless time is of a critical nature, I would move that all major capital spending decisions should only be included through the yearly budget process.
