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.

The Platform

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.

Take the survey

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.
