The second of two All Candidates Meetings took place last Sunday at the Luskville Community Centre for candidates running in wards 4, 5 and 6.
The candidates representing Ward 4 were incumbent councilor Inès Pontiroli and newcomer James Eggleton; for Ward 5, incumbent Brian Middlemiss and newcomer Pierre Gervais; and in ward 6 veteran councilor Bill Twolan. Incumbent councilor Jean Amyotte did not participate.
*Please note that candidates did not have the right of rebuttal as per the parameters that were set up by the organizers.
Inès Pontiroli (Ward 4)
During the last mandate I noticed that it happened that we lost sight of the projects that were underway because there is a lot of moving pieces happening in the Municipality.
I would like to see is implementation of a Project Management System which will track all the projects that are underway. We’ll be able to see exactly what the status is, what are the issues going on with each of the projects, have a bit of control of the costs and the risk management aspect of it.
Pierre Gervais (Ward 5)
As stated earlier, my number one priority is to provide a voice to the residents and ensure that there issues are brought to council. Just as important is communicating back to them the final outcome.
Bill Twolan (Ward 6)
First of all, to encourage economic growth and development would be to encourage new businesses to set up in the Pontiac. It’s very difficult right now with the way its set up for commercial property; there’s some in Quyon, there’s a little patch here, and a little patch there. What we need is an industrial park in the east end, closer to the nucleus of Gatineau and Ottawa. This is very important also for our population - our young people - to get jobs and find long-term employment.
