As a Councillor for the Town of Wasaga Beach and a supporter of the environment, I was excited to see Ontario’s water, farmland, and natural heritage protected.

George’s Promise

I shall continue supporting our rapidly growing community by;

  • Ensuring local tax dollars are invested and spent wisely;
  • Prioritizing a review of the operational responsibilities of all current Wasaga Beach Boards and Committees;
  • Directing staff to aggressively market Wasaga Beach as a four seasons tourism destination;
  • Continuing, as I have done since 2001, to constructively advocate to provincial and education authorities for construction of a high school in Wasaga Beach;
  • Continue the expansion of our local transportation and develop trails and bike lanes through the entire community;
  • Encouraging the development of mixed housing neighbourhoods with a variety of affordable options;
  • Researching issues and speaking independently, while respectfully responding, in a civil manner, the views of council colleagues and the general public.
