MY CAMPAIGN PRIORITIES
Thriving Local Economy: I will enable a strong and diverse local economy that supports small businesses and entrepreneurs to help them start, grow, finance and manage their business. As a local entrepreneur and business owner, I have the lived experience and proven track record to know what it takes for businesses to thrive in Peterborough.
Urban Biodiversity Protection: I will advocate for the implementation of a Biodiversity Protection Plan to support the vision of our city being home to diverse pollinator and plant communities that contribute to resilient ecosystems and enhance urban biodiversity. I will also advocate for the preservation of green spaces and of our waterways, and for the protection of wildlife.
Connected and Safe Transportation: I will advocate for Peterborough residents who want transportation that is accessible and affordable, safe for all users, cost-effective, and sustainable. I will focus on increasing density and availability of local services which will shorten the distances to destinations and make it easier to use a variety of transportation options.
Housing for Families: I will accelerate planning and approvals for more housing and promote vibrant neighbourhoods to improve liveability and affordability in Northcrest Ward. I will support the implementation of a task force to help develop a local comprehensive housing plan that incentivizes the creation of affordable housing units.
Local Climate Solutions: I will bring forward local solutions to climate change so we can all benefit from a healthy and resilient environment for generations to come. I will champion the implementation of Peterborough's Climate Change Action Plan and support community-led climate initiatives including community gardens, tree planting, and tool libraries.
Community Wellbeing: I will support community initiatives based on local expertise, so we can all live in vibrant and inclusive neighbourhoods. I will facilitate neighbour-to-neighbour networks of support to build collective wellbeing and safer communities. At the heart of every vibrant neighbourhood are hubs where people can gather, share stories and build community.
