Mark Sullivan is running for city council.

Council candidate Mark Sullivan says City Hall must adapt if the city is to be successful

Mark Sullivan says his background in business makes him the right choice for city councillor.

Mark Sullivan says his background in business makes him the right choice for city councillor.

“As a businessman and member of the Chamber of Commerce I know that to remain competitive in today’s economic conditions I must adapt, be cost effective and innovative,” Sullivan says.

“As a councillor I would expect the city to follow the same procedures. We just cannot continue to expand City Hall when so many of our residents are hard pressed just to make ends meet.”

Sullivan says he wants to ensure the city allows for solid, expandable core services for all tax payers, residential, commercial, industrial, agricultural, etc. early in the budget process for the coming fiscal period.

“Everthing else to be dealt with on a priority basis with whatever is ‘left in the pot’ no tax increase,” Sullivan says.

“The city has to compete vigorously and with a long reach to attract the type of business and industry that we require and so many other municipalities vie for,” Sullivan says.

He says senior services, education, sports and recreation facilities, as well as state-of-the-art hospital availabilty, low cost housing and a concerted program to aid the homeless are there, all within the city’s reach.

“What we need to get there is to elect a mayor and council with the ‘right stuff’,” Sullivan says.

“On Nov. 19 vote for those of us you feel have the qualities, abilities, experience and leadership you deserve to represent you.”

The municipal election takes place Sat., Nov. 19 from 8 a.m.-8 p.m.
