Re: Candidates must define their vision of Delta in the future, Community Comment, July 26
I feel it is important for the residents of Delta to be given as much information as possible before making a pivotal vote in October's historic election.
My team and I are guided by four key principles: continued community safety, fiscal responsibility, reduced bureaucratic hurdles for local businesses and improving relationships with our community partners. These are the key strategic issues that will guide our leadership of our community … all of which hinges on listening. Which is what we are doing.
We have not put forward a detailed set of decisions to what we will execute following a successful result. There is a reason for that -- consultation means listening.
As soon as a set of proposals has been presented, listening stops and telling starts. As mayor, I will continue to listen and I will lead guided by clear principles.
Our slate of candidates will be discussing more detailed plans as we get closer to election day. For now, we subscribe to the “two ears, one mouth” philosophy. We listen twice as much as we speak.
We look forward to the balance of the campaign and election day on Saturday, Oct. 20.
