Geoff Bourdon rounds out the list of incumbent city councillors who have announced their intentions when it comes to the upcoming Nov. 19 municipal election.
In Bourdon’s case, the answer to the question of whether he’s standing for re-election is yes.
The one-term councillor made his decision public Wednesday.
“I’m running again because it’s making a difference,” Bourdon said.
That’s a reference to both policy and relationships council has with other groups in the city, he said.
“There’s so much more done when everyone is working together rather than alone.”
Bourdon listed the term’s accomplishments of: revised parking, animal control, storage container, false alarm and signage bylaws as well as the creation of an industrial revitalization tax exemption bylaw, a revision of the grant-in-aid and fee-for-service criteria and revised criteria for permissive property tax exemptions.
For the upcoming term, Bourdon says he looks forward to further economic development.
That includes tax incentive programs focussed on economic diversification and commercial expansion and opportunities for longer-term planning.
