Hamilton profile

I am a local business owner, father of two great kids, and husband to one very patient and understanding wife. I am also a youth hockey, baseball, and soccer coach, and member of numerous executive and volunteer boards.
I am proud to be a dedicated supporter of the Canadian Cancer Society and “Community Chest,” and enjoy hockey, boating, and cross-county skiing.
My reasons for running again in 2006 are simple. I want to continue to serve my community, participate in the decisions affecting our town, and strive to make Fort Frances an even better place to live.
To me, being a councillor is an honour and a challenge, every day. It’s a tremendous commitment in time, not only for me but for my family. They have been really supportive.
I’m not a fan of campaign-style debates such as the Chamber of Commerce all-candidates’ forum, but prefer my deeds to speak for me.
I believe people vote for all that you have done in the community, not what you read off a sheet of paper in two minutes or less, but I’ll be there.
As with the 2003 election, I’m encouraging supporters to post their own “Vote Todd” sticky notes around town. The sticky notes took on a life of their own during the last campaign.
I welcome and applaud anyone that wants to be involved in running for council. It’s a big commitment and I wish everyone good luck.
I have attended to my council duties with diligence and integrity. I promise to use my experience, judgment, and expertise in making decisions that are best for Fort Frances.
I want to continue to serve my community.
Seeing the active transportation project become a reality, maintaining the continuous improvement of the sewer, water, and roads, and the sound management of the town’s finances are very important to me.
I want to see our town not only survive challenges, I want to see growth and prosperity.
During my battle with cancer, a good friend told me, “That which does not kill us, makes us stronger.” I think it’s appropriate for our town at this important time.
We’re going face each challenge—and we’re going to be stronger.
