A Message to Voters

Jim Whelan

Fiscally responsible and responsive local government are two of my main concerns this election.


I believe that in my four terms of Council we delivered exactly that: fiscally responsible government that was responsive to you the voter.


We built an amazing amount of new buildings that continue to provide services to you including the: Medical Center, Community Center, Fire Halls and Libraries to name a few. Some of these projects are shown below but they are all listed on my Past Performance page.


When I left office ALL of these facilities were FULLY PAID FOR, we had a TWO MILLION DOLLAR RESERVE and we had the LOWEST MUNICIPAL TAX RATE in Peterborough County.


With your support we can elect a strong team at Council that get's things done.

Let's get North Kawartha back on track!

Our Community Centre is a great example of what we can do together if we apply our vision, fiscal responsibility and team work. The Community Centre and the exercise equipment was all fully paid for by provincial and federal grants. But what about on going costs? Lets compare the Parks and Recreation budget with the old Community Centre to the budget with the new Community Centre. This year with the new Community Centre and all the improved facilities the cost is just 18% more than it was in 2009. Plus we have a much greater opportunity to generate revenue by renting our new and improved facilities as well as attracting new partners like the Junior C Hockey Team that will call the new Arena home this fall.

Why I'm Running for Deputy Mayor

With all we have accomplished in fourteen years on Council you may ask why I am seeking another term.
The answer is simple, I look around me and I can see there is alot of work to do.
