Council Candidate: Richard Dunsdon running in Corporation of the Village of Midway

Corporation of the Village of Midway: Dunsdon, Richard – Council Candidate

Richard Dunsdon

 

My name is Richard Dunsdon and my wife and I have lived in Midway since 1987. My background is in public education and since retirement I have served 3 terms on the Village of Midway Council.

I have been and will continue to be a productive and prepared member of council. I bring a sense of urgency and a sense of humor to the business of the village. I do my utmost to make things happen and purposefully make every effort to represent all interests in the community. I understand the need to make Midway visible to the world around us and view Midway as a co-operative, equal player in the Boundary. We need to plan around the aging demographics of our community keeping in mind the need to entice younger people to call Midway home. Volunteers are the lifeline for many local community services and as the population ages the Village may have to come up alternative strategies for services like our Fire Department.

As a member of council I am proud of our accomplishments over the past few years namely: reopening of the Midway sawmill, a community forest, Village revitalization bylaw, Village beautification including the community garden, Village website upgrade, arena up grade and expansion, museum up grades and riverfront park expansion and upgrades.

I ask for your support on November 15 in order to continue to build on our successes and look for new initiatives that will endeavor to make Midway a town that does survive and prosper. In order for small towns to survive the urbanization onslaught we must: Form alliances with nearby urban regions, Go Global, Welcome immigration, Build a strong social infrastructure, Exploit all of a towns assets, think regionally and finally If you’ve got it Flaunt it.

Thanks in advance for your support and Please Vote.
