Ive noticed recently that its getting darker much earlier than expected. I was out on Beaty Trail this evening and noticed it was just after 8pm when it started to get dark. I did manage to get to quite a few homes this evening and spoke a lot of people.
I ran into a lady who was doing some cleaning in her garage…I scared the bejeepers out of her as I walked up the driveway (I AM very sorry!) and she was disappointed her husband wasnt there as he kept up to date on municipal issues and had a few questions. I will be making my way back to their house because his input is needed. As with everyone in the Town of Milton, their opinions and views should be heard.
While she was describing her husbands passion for municipal politics all I could think of is the Citizens Advisory Committee … he would be a great addition! Its important for people who live in the ward to be involved.
Another gentleman I spoke with also made mention the fact that his voice seems to have gone unheard. Each time he has commented on certain issues with the town, he hasnt received the response he would have liked. “You have to live here on a daily basis to know whats going on” he told me.
Most of the issues that I faced this evening had to do with the Trudeau raceway as it was called, speeding, parklands and neighbourhood safety topped the list of concerns. Seems to be a universal concern of many people in Ward One.
As an aside, someone called me “the guy with the great fridge magnet!” He was referring to my campaign magnet which includes some frequently used numbers, as well as my website and email address.
If you would like one of these magnets, just send me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org and I will have one of our campaign team drop one off for you. It does come in quite handy.
Another day and another 60-70 homes down, and I cant even imagine how many homes to go before November 13th. I better get some more rest.
Just as reminder the Salvation Army KHI Community is having their Carnival on Saturday September 9th starting at 3pm at Pineland Farms off Trafalger Road (north of the 401). There is going to be a bake sale, BBQ, bouncy castle, prizes and lots of fun.
I will see you at the doors!
