Mark Sullivan

A bright, dynamic future

Three questions for city council candidates – Mark Sullivan

1. I see a bright dynamic future for our city in business and industry, recreation and sports facility excellence and a thriving centre for the arts. I envision a downtown that is active and alive in the evenings, well lit, shops and cafes open, musicians and artists welcome and thriving.

How do we get there? Elect a strong team of mayor and council from among the many candidates, gender, age and background mix but leaders all. Representitives that have the will to bring the vision to fruition, be as approachable in office as on campaign and accountable at all times.

 

2. I feel that the experience in business, education, and community service over my career are tailor made for office as a councillor for the city. Those of you that know me can attest to my integrity, drive and passion for all that I do; those that I have yet to meet soon will. I have a natural sense of humour that needs to be seen more in politics.

Don’t make the common mistake of taking yourself too seriously as a councillor. It is not about me…it is all about serving you and our collective best interests.

 

3. The entire concept begins at the top and through all departments as the way things are going to be conducted with all dealings with the public.

Once again I urge you all to elect a mayor and full council with the “right stuff.” Add each councillors vote decision to the already available council agendas and minutes. Ensure that the communications department is structured and instructed to match outgoing notifications with incoming feedback. That it is open and receptive as a front line in a new way of open two way communication. That the city website have an effective line of direct communication with mayor and council for all to see both the input and most importantly the response posted.
