Monteleone Supports Multiplex - Tuesday, September 16, 2014

 

Monteleone Supports Multiplex

THUNDER BAY, ON  ----   September 16, 2014   ---  “Claudio Monteleone believe that the MClaudio Monteleoneulti-Plex Convention Centre is a great idea for our community and it should be built. The reality is that the current Fort William Gardens only has ten to twenty years of good life left in it. If we wait for development of a new centre later on, not only will it cost a great deal more, but the upkeep of the current centre will also be costly. We have an opportunity to move forward if this project is done properly. I have faith in the local business community and the citizens of our community to see that this project becomes a reality. The economic impact to our community will be great for many years after the centre is built for our local retailers, local restaurants and the various local service businesses.

Streib My Purpose & Priorities

THUNDER  BAY, ON  ----   September  14, 2014   -----  For over 26 years, I have worked Barry Strieb Thunder Bayto ensure Thunder Bay is a better place to live, work and play.  My work with the Thunder Bay Chamber of Commerce, the Northwestern Ontario Associated Chambers of Commerce and the Ontario Chamber of Commerce has focused on supporting and assisting local businesses to grow and prosper.

Bluesfest and the Marathon draw tourists each year, and support local vendors in the purchase of supplies and services.

I am offering myself to serve our community as Councillor-at-Large for the coming term of City Council.  Thunder Bay has diversified over the past many years, and we need to focus our efforts to ensure we are competitive, can attract investment, and be a safe and healthy community to raise our families.

Mauro said. “It is important to city create a climate of economic opportunity that will allow people to raise their families and provide their children with the same chances for success that we enjoyed”.

He sees this as an example of how a few individuals can truly make a difference in the community.
 
Mauro’s other areas of concern are fully addressing Northwood’s long time drainage problems, the state of area roads and he is proposing an electronic voting system for City Council to record how each member of Council votes. Mauro believes this will improve both transparency and accountability on how the city is governed.

IT’S TIME TO RALLY TO END THE VIOLENCE - Thursday, September 4, 2014

IT’S TIME TO RALLY TO END THE VIOLENCE

THUNDER BAY, ON  ------  September 4, 2014Boshcoff vows to call town hall meeting to address violenKen Boshcoffce in the community,

within one week after election.

Since records have been kept by Police no year has ever exceeded the first 8 months for murders as 2014.

You will surely agree that even one homicide is too many. With 4 months to go I share your frustration and your fears about the
direction in which these statistics are heading. Because we all know they are more than numbers. People are dying right in our
neighbourhoods and parks.

Since I have last written about crime and violence I am as shocked as you are that it continues so steadily.

Many of you have called, written, or talked to me when I am out in the community about what can be done.

This matter has become top of mind for everyone in the community. I cannot promise as others have that I can end crime, but I

am certainly willing to work with anybody or any group that REALLY is willing to commit to dealing with this head-on.

How long before our beautiful marina becomes the site of a horrible accident? Guide wire fencing stops right around the corner of our splash pad which is filled with small children all summer long.

 Sitting area complete with chairs designed for children flank the splash pad. A mere 24 feet from these chairs is a long unprotected area of the dock with only a timber separating a child from a 3 foot drop into the frigid Lake Superior waters. And if , god forbid, a child would fall in, it would require extreme effort to rescue drowning child.  Lake Superior News
