Government that talks with people
✔ I will talk with people, in their communities, about what they want. I will keep people informed. I will establish a website to enhance communication with Area P residents.
Keep a lid on taxes
✔ I will support prudent budgets and taxation control, and giving residents more input into the budgeting process.
Making things work
✔ Services should work. I will consult with communities on priorities. I will work to ensure we get a fair share of funding from senior governments. I will lobby other governments for improvements to infrastructure such as roads.
✔ I will work for the integrity of neighbourhoods, emphasize communication and co-operation; and be vigilant against over-regulation.
✔ I will propose a customer-focused approach for all TNRD departments, and a TNRD Taxpayer’s Charter to back it up.
