chatsworth-regAn open letter to Mayor Bob Pringle;

Dear Mayor,

This is to let you know that I have updated my blog (at http://shininglightonchatsworth.wordpress.com/) with information about the Peter J. Marshall Award presented to you and to Mayor Barfoot at the annual conference of the Association of Municipalities of Ontario on August 17, 2014. The Award's objective is "to showcase instances where Ontario municipalities have implemented and can point to tangible, measurable outcomes from new, more cost effective ways of providing public services and facilities."

McManaman-regLast week, I filed my papers to run for Owen Sound City Council in the October 27th election.

It has been a privilege to serve on Council and I hope to have the opportunity to help move the City forward over the next 4 years. I've always believed in giving back to my community...and I feel my experience will be critically important in the next term of Council. We have a large infrastructure deficit and we face the loss of nearly a million dollars in provincial government funding. That will require tough decisions and strong leadership from Council.

Blog-regAn open letter to Mayor Bob Pringle;

Mayor Pringle, I expect you will be interested in having a quick look at my new blog at http://shininglightonchatsworth.wordpress.com/ .

You will see that the supporting information for this week's council meeting, which was sent to me on Monday by email, is available under the tab "Council Agenda Packages." This marks the first time that background information for a council meeting is generally available.

GaryPaterson-regEditor;

The Right Rev. Dr. Gary Paterson, Moderator of the United Church of Canada, will be speaking at Georgian Shores United Church in Saturday, September 20, 2014 at 3:00 PM. He will be participating in an open question and answer session with members of Northern Waters Presbytery. All are welcome.

Paterson was elected in 2012 as the spiritual leader of Canada's largest Protestant church. He is the first openly gay person in the world to become the head of any Christian mainline denomination.

fire-regEditor;

It's Sunday morning, my house is quiet so no more excuses not to write this letter.. Simply put, Owen Sound's 10 St.Bridge is a disaster in the making.

I live on County Road 15, along the east shore of the harbour in the Municipality of Meaford, only a few hundred feet from Owen Sound. More specifically, Grey Road 15 becomes Third Ave.E. in Owen Sound. More significantly, it runs by the Owen Sound Fire Hall which is only four or five minutes from my home. The catch is that OSFD serves both the east and west sides of the harbor which also means it must cross west over the 10th St. bridge at times. However, The Inter-Township Fire Hall is on the west side of the habour and provides service for Georgian Bluffs and what once was Sydenham Township where I live. Thus, at times, it must proceed east over the 10th St. bridge.
