Each pillar includes deliverables with timelines that emphasis on creating a home for today and tomorrow, municipal governance, the economy, rebuilding and partnerships in the RMWB.

Scott notes that there has been a decrease in the resident’s level of confidence in the region that pertains to their representation by elected officials and various levels of governments.

His campaign will be based on listening to the residents of the communities within the RMWB and ensuring they have an opportunity to contribute to the future of the region.

“I have always believed the RMWB has tremendous potential and opportunity, and I believe with strong, open and accountable leadership we can restore the trust and confidence that has weakened and move into an even stronger tomorrow for every resident of this incredible region,” said Scott.

The election is on Monday, October 16, 2017.
