I have had the chance to share my platform with many residents. However given the size of Ward 5, I want to ensure that I am reaching as many people as possible. I am deeply committed to this community and I take an interest in bettering the lives of everyone in it. I am a firm believer that we can make positive changes in our community without sacrificing our bottom line nor our integrity.
My entire campaign platform consists of my values and areas that I am confident that I can work diligently at accomplishing. Below is an overview of each of my platform areas, I encourage you to reach out to me to further discuss.
Honesty, Integrity and Vision!
Social and Community Engagement
I’ve worked in the Not-For-Profit sector in Timmins for 15 years and I enjoy working directly with the people of our community. I’ve been successful at obtaining government grants to infuse monetary value and enhanced quality into programs and services within our community.
Being of Indigenous ancestry, I often share my culture, teachings and indigenous history. I frequently attend local schools, agencies and businesses to provide Indigenous Cultural Competency Training sessions.
Balanced Approach to Governance
I believe that our local government must be a respectful and respected part of community. I believe in a council that is productive, gathers facts and responds accordingly. Our community deserves a government that listens, engages them and allows the community’s input. I also believe that there are times that disagreements will happen but council should not become the landscape for Lateral Violence.
Strategic Partnerships to Attract Industry and Job Creation
I have a lot of experience with proposal writing and continue to very involved with many oraganizations and committees, as I have done over the past 15 years.
I know that through strategic partnerships our community can access funds that were not previously, our community can strengthen relationships and work smarter, our community can thrive and community members will be proud to tell everyone they know that they are proud residents of Timmins!
I am a person who has been actively engaged in the community, I am NOT a person who is shaking hands and taking pictures for the purpose of this campaign.
Lastly, in deciding who is deserving enough of your Vote. Consider the past four years, and if you think that innovation, new ideas and professionalism is needed....
VOTE Kristin murray, a candidate who has a proven track record of success!
