Area D candidates – Brenda Leigh

We asked the candidates: What are the issues in your area and how are you going to tackle them?

My outlook is positive and my focus is on solutions. Throughout my six, three-year terms as Director of Area D, I have worked with the community, staff, board and upper levels of government to formulate plans to deliver our community’s goals.

Over the past 18 years, I have kept my community a wonderful place to live and recreate. I serve my constituents with care and attention.

Area D is excellent financial shape through strong fiscal management. This allows me to keep our property taxes under control.

This year, I delivered an average reduction in property taxes of $176 per $100,000 for every home. Service improvements to Oyster River include a new water treatment centre and reservoir, new fire hall, bank protection on the river, playground funding and emergency wildfire plans and many improved parks and trails.

In northern Area D, the sewer between Ocean Grove and the Crawford Loop is in this year’s capital budget.

More details on this project will be going out to community meetings soon. This project relies on two-thirds federal/provincial funding and we have succeeded in getting $3.24 million from Build Canada towards Phase One.

In fact, we have a total of $5.27 million in the capital budget and our engineer and staff have been working on the detailed planning throughout the past year.

So, for a director with proven experience, commitment and ability, the voters can rely on me. I stand on my record as one of the most reputable leaders in our region.
