Burlington 2014 Election

Several residents have reported to me that they’ve been told by a candidate for public school trustee that “Burlington Central is closing.” You’ve turned to me for accurate information.

The short answer is that no, Burlington Central is not closing – nor is any other Burlington school slated for closure.

We live in a great city and must take care to keep what is great as we grow and change. We must protect what residents value and what makes them want to live here in the first place. We do that when City Hall works with residents, putting the needs of residents first.

I’m running to put residents first and get action on the issues you care about. Check out my campaign site – votemarianne.ca where you can read more about why I’m running and my commitments to you.

I’ve developed a comprehensive platform addressing:

  • greater accountability by council members on fundraising and recorded votes;
  • development and intensification that protects neighbourhood character, greenspace and our financial bottom line;
  • our momentum on a vibrant downtown and focus on more jobs;
  • the need to find savings, with spending on infrastructure and priorities that matter to you;
  • and more on heritage, affordable housing, transit, waterfront access, and community participation.
