Councillor David Adair, who is running for deputy mayor, spoke to The Hub recently about his campaign and his vision of the city.

Kepler-regOwen Sound – As a prominent Owen Sound landlord, Jon Kepler has been watching news coverage of the BCK bylaw issue with special interest. Effective immediately, Mr. Kepler is offering to purchase $500,000 worth of preconstruction residential or retail space on the BCK site. This offer is subject to his approval of the final cost per square foot and his inspection of a site plan. If no site plan exists, he is willing to wait until one is drafted. The exact details of the development are inconsequential to him. If this offer is accepted in the next seven days, a deposit will be provided within 24 hours.

Dobbyn-regBy Anne Finlay-Stewart

Swimming 100 miles was a personal goal for Francesca Dobbyn. Today she completed the challenge and took on another, filing her papers to stand as a candidate for Owen Sound city council.

With her children launched on their own careers and the full support of the board of United Way of Bruce Grey, where she executive director, the time is right both personally and professionally, she said at an informal gathering this morning.

When city issues such as public transit and low-income access to the Regional Recreation Centre arose, Dobbyn was surprised to discover how many people felt they had no voice at the city, and she felt she could act as a conduit for their concerns. This is what she hopes to offer as a councillor. "It's easy to be a Monday morning quarterback," she says, "But there comes a point where you have to step up and be pro-active and advocate from within."
