The End of No-Strings-Attached Budgeting
I am bringing a motion at the September 12, 2016 Council Meeting (seconded by Judy Hupponen) to end the current practice of no-strings-attached budgeting by the City of Sault Ste. Marie. My motion asks that, as a condition of receiving funding, agencies must provide budget presentations, summaries of their budgets, and financial statements when requested by the City. Read my motion here.
City Council Review Committee
More than 14 years since the last review took place, I brought a motion at the June 13, 2016 Council meeting to strike a Committee on Democratic Reform. Council unanimously endorsed my efforts and I look forward to serving with four Councillors and the Mayor on the Democratic Reform Committee to look into how many Councillors the City of Sault Ste. Marie should have on their City Council, and whether there should be geographic divisions in the way those Councillors represent the City. I’d love to know what you think and you can provide your feedback through my Contact page.
You can find my expenses posted under the Council Business tab of the navigation menu. Additionally, you can see my voting record under the “Voting Record” tab. You can also reach me concerning City-wide or ward issues, or provide me feedback, through the “Contact” tab. I will continue to provide updates on ward and City-wide issues through my e-mail list, this website, as well as on Twitter and Facebook.
