Hello, my name is Eli Ridder and I plan to launch a campaign for city council representing Ward 4 starting on May 1, 2018.
I hear and share your concerns over rising property taxes, a floundering transit system and lack of transparency. I want to bring concerns straight from the people of Ward 4 and across Guelph to city council, and advocate for what residents want, need and hope for.
Ward 4 is my home. I have lived in the northwest end for over a decade and I grew up in Guelph. I currently go to the University of Guelph-Humber in Toronto for journalism.
Fiscal Responsibility – I am for a 2 per cent property tax.
Consistent Transparency – Residents young and old need to engage in democracy but they can’t do that without clear information on what’s going on.
More to come.
It’s time for a fresh voice
The current city councillors will have served at council for a combined 19 years by the end of this term.
Five minutes of your time could help me find out what the key issues for you are, and what else I could potentially fight for at 1 Carden Street.
