Bill Gordon – Midland Ward 2
from Midland Mirror
It has been my honour and privilege to have served the community as a member of our former century-old community police service for 24 years before it was disbanded in February 2018.
It is my desire to be YOUR voice in Municipal affairs for the next four years. I will not dismiss your deputations or petitions. I will not be unduly influenced by special interest groups and won’t participate in shadow councils or behind-the-scenes deals that run counter to the open and transparent democratic process guaranteed by the Municipal Act.
I will carefully examine the facts of each issue I am asked to vote on. I will consult with the community and hear your input both for and against important issues. I will vote to support the best interests of the town for its short-term and long-term prosperity for both my family and yours.
I will, however, seek out facts from subject matter experts, and the community to help guide my decisions and share that rationale with you before I cast each vote.
Just as I was in my policing career, I am always approachable and ready to hear more than one side to an issue. My bias is towards the truth and towards evidence-based decision making. Neither my vote nor my support is for sale or rent. My goal is to serve the community with fairness, impartiality and to keep openness and transparency at the forefront unless prohibited by law.
My priorities if elected to council this term will include but are not limited to: improved community safety, community collaboration and consultation, improved municipal communications, youth and seniors Issues, municipal efficiencies and waterfront preservation for the community
If my beliefs align with your own, I invite you to cast one of your three Ward 2 votes for me on Oct. 22. I’ll put our Community First! in every decision I am asked to make. Please visit www.billgordon.ca for more details.
