Born and raised in Carleton Place Sean has been very active in the community since he was a teenager. Sean has been involved locally in business, lumber and building industry for more than 35 years.
From coaching and refereeing from the 70's, BIA and Chamber in the 80's various industry committees, town committees, CSA standards committees, soccer club as coach and president, organizing and hosting charity events to name just a few. Sean plans to continue being an active and visible member of our community as your Councillor.
The next four years are very important in dealing with all aspects of our community, Sound planning and solid economic growth is a must for our growing community.
Economic development of all kinds is critical, be it residential, commercial or industrial. We must be proactive in planning, promoting, encouraging and securing development. We must also work hard at retaining what we have. Finding, promoting and forming partnerships.This will not only help us broaden our tax base, create employment and provide more affordable housing, it will allow us to continue to grow our services, without adding additional burden on our citizens.
I believe it is time for council to be much more responsible, both fiscally and socially, to the people who elected us. There will be some tough decisions to be made in the next few years. As a council we must weigh the impact that these decisions will have for this term of council and councils to come.
