In my careers I have worn many different hats. My favourite position was the Southwest Yard of Vaughn Assistant Supervisor for Winter Maintenance through James Dick Construction. I was responsible for new driver training, scheduled maintenance on a 33 combo plow fleet, 45 driver scheduling, route design, yard
organization, region reporting requirements, and payroll duties. I was able to use my financial, leadership,
and organization skills to maintain high morale and good productivity in a fast paced environment.
I have learned through many different years and environments that Brantford and Brant County really are great places. We’ve got a beautiful rural countryside and many many amenities. Our area in South Western Ontario truly is special.
Having had Teaching and Leadership roles my favourite things to say are good job, and great idea! There’s nothing more pleasurable from a leadership role than to have our team being productive, respectful, and coming to work with a positive and optimistic attitude. I will set and maintain that standard as Mayor.
It would be a privilege to serve my hometown, raise the morale, pride, inclusiveness, and deliver value for our taxpayers as Mayor
The process will be simplified and fast. 911 Numbers already account for growth. This will increase property tax revenues as new residential lots are added to our registry, and the first (and most cumbersome) step to
buying a lot and owning a home will be done.
No Permit ≤ 750 sq²
Garden Apartments, Granny Suites, and tiny homes aren’t going to materially impact our infrastructure service systems. In tough economic times like now we should be making housing easy, quick, and
inexpensive. A Multi family property vision is achievable! Imagine being able to buy a lot, put in your services, and get a modular house! Home ownership will be made possible with Mayor Swanson!
People on limited and fixed incomes are facing increased mobility costs to get to the grocery store, the drug store, for young mothers to take the children to the pool and the community centre etc. This service will be more and more valuable in the years to come.
An improved highway for commercial traffic would be a great boon for Brant County, the city of Brantford, and the Six Nations Indian Reserve. Trussler Rd, Highway 24 North and the intersection of Grand River and William is only going to get more congested. Having a 400 series Highway will be safer and divert truck traffic away from our downtowns.
