George Sterling:

GEORGE STERLING for REEVE

As a councillor in Ryerson Township for the past eleven years, I am now asking for your support in the upcoming election. As a permanent resident of Ryerson since 1999, I have worked to improve our community in both my elected capacity and as a volunteer with several service organizations.

As we prepare for the future of our region the Economic Development Committee has completed a survey of small business in the area and has made recommendations to us. I commend the committee for their diligence and am prepared to support their recommendations to bring greater tourism and work opportunities to Ryerson and the surrounding townships. Several cost saving measures have also been identified in the survey of community services. It is my intention to see road improvement and bicycle lanes constructed to bring more tourism to the Near North, to see enhanced service to WiFi, cell phone networks and to encourage workplace training to allow our young people to live and work close to home.

I also support the unification of community services such as the Library, Sport arena, Landfill site and Fire department. These will promote efficiency and cost saving measures for our tax dollars.

It is important to be open and approachable to all of our residents both permanent and seasonal, and to keep Ryerson Township a great place to live, work and play.

My goal as Reeve will be to continue to serve the people of Ryerson in a fair, firm and friendly manner. I thank you for your interest in our community and I look forward to your support at the polls on October 22nd, 2018.

THANK YOU

George Sterling

Celia Finley:

CELIA FINLEY for COUNCIL

My name is Celia Finley and I am standing for council in Ryerson Township. I am a happily married mother of four and grandmother of four. I am a graduate of the University of Toronto, with a B.A. in history and classical studies.

Before moving to Ryerson, I was a longtime resident of Huntsville and served on the Heritage Committee of council for ten years. I also served on the Downtown and Waterfront working group for the Official Plan Update.

Since moving to Ryerson, I co-authored an Investment Readiness study for the Ryerson, Armour and Burk’s Falls joint economic development committee and am pleased that many of our recommendations to increase the attractiveness and competitiveness of the area for business development have been acted upon.

I promise to work to ensure that services are delivered at the lowest possible cost by working cooperatively with Burk’s Falls and Armour whenever possible.

I will be vigilant about the protection of our natural environment and the preservation of the rural, recreational character of the township, while encouraging long-term growth through appropriate development.

I support affordable high speed rural broadband availability and continued participation in economic development initiatives for the region that will bring well paid jobs to attract young families to our beautiful area.

Continued support for local healthcare and Huntsville hospital are an essential part of that development. In addition, I support the building of a new senior care facility in Burk’s Falls, which will offer all levels of care to our growing population of seniors, as well as providing much needed employment for a variety of skills.

I will work to establish an ongoing dialogue with taxpayers and residents to get their input on the issues through twice yearly public meetings with no agenda, where all may speak freely, air their complaints and share their best ideas. Let’s all work together for a brighter future.
