Stuart’s interest is not in politics. He is not, and has never been affiliated with any political party or special interest group. It has always been his belief that we should put the interests and the benefit of the community first.
From his experiences, he believes the qualities of a successful business are similar to that of a well run municipality, and those are:
- Offering quality products and services
- Exceptional customer experience
- Inviting and comfortable surroundings where all are welcome
- Realistic and effective budgeting and controlling costs
- Targeted marketing and promotion
“Leadership is not about the next election, it’s about the next generation.”
The community needs more housing that is affordable for young adults, young families and the rapidly growing elderly population. Consider incentives to developers, increased densities in the appropriate areas to encourage more housing options and contain urban sprawl.
Taxes and spending
Spend on the needs of the community not special agendas. Prioritize expenditures to what benefits the many and not the few.
Employment & Economic Development
Encourage and facilitate employment opportunities for both large and small businesses. A strong small business community is the best way to increase employment and prosperity.
Participate in and facilitate a strategy to assist those in the community who are less fortunate, many through no fault of their own. Further the good work already being done in the community by the likes of Home Horizon and others.
Red Carpet not Red Tape
Help Town Hall become more efficient. Allow public servants the time and permission to find better ways to deliver services to business and residents. Look to other jurisdictions for best practices.
