Kal Johnson — Ramara Township Ward 5
from Orillia Today
My name is Kal Johnson, I’m 61 years old and I’m running for re-election as Ward 5 councillor in Ramara.
My wife and I have resided in Lagoon City for 24 years, been married 40 years and have three children. After running a successful business for 28 years (400-plus employees), I decided to retire in 2011.
I was honoured to be voted councillor in 2014. Over the course of 40 years in business and now municipal experience, I have developed a skill set of financial management, employee relations, production, and project management. I am dedicated to our town and have diligently worked these past four years to implement fresh ideas and accountability. Your support enabled us to make Ward 5 a better place to live. We managed to table a balanced budget, reduce debt, find greater success in weed management in our lagoons and create a dog park — all in just four years!
I actively sit on 13 boards and a variety of committees. I have a reputation of being involved, knowledgeable and approachable.
My vision for the next four years is to continue focusing on affordability, accessibility, safety and support, and building our community.
We can do this by:
• Finding greater efficiency in our water and waste treatment plant;
• Dealing with the long waits at the railroad tracks;
• Exploring new ways to manage our lagoons;
• Regulating short term rentals within the town.
I publish a monthly article which keeps residents educated and informed. If you would like to receive a copy, please email me for inclusion in the email blast.
I’m excited to serve this community for another term. If you have questions or concerns, please call or email me.
Please consider showing your support with a lawn sign.
Do you want to help our town continue to take action? Let’s do this together — a vote for me is a vote for action!
