Eric believes that a strong city begins with strong communities. Our economic momentum is creating opportunities. Saskatoon is standing at the edge of its future. Eric believes we need forward thinking leadership and he will lead the way with smart and effective growth for all Saskatoon residents.
Roads -- More resources need to be directed to roadways with not enough attention being paid to their upkeep or their improvement in the past. The time has come to make a significant investment. For businesses to be successful in Saskatoon proper infrastructure needs to be maintained. Eric will ensure that resources are allocated to this issue to continue with the business-friendly philosophy Eric is committed to.
Seniors Property Tax Deferral Program -- City council and the administration made good strides bringing this to fruition in 2012. Eric would advocate to drop the income requirement of the program. Cutting red tape and supporting citizens 65 and over to stay in their homes longer just makes sense with an aging population.
Alleyways -- Eric has heard loud and clear what the residents in Ward 8 with back alleys want. They want City Hall to sharpen their pencils and budget more dollars to make them a priority. Eric will make it his priority!
Taxes -- Residents of Ward 8 have spoken. They have said that they need value for their tax dollars. Eric will work to ensure that all departments are lean and agile to deal with the growth Saskatoon is experiencing.
Holmwood Neighborhood Plan -- Eric, in his role as President of the East College Park Community Association, helped facilitate resident input with the City Planner every step of the way. Eric wants to continue to be a part of a strong plan to facilitate transportation, parks and schooling with all of Ward 8 residents’ concerns front and center.
