Vote Given for Mayor, 0ct 16th

I believe the election is the perfect time to have a conversation about what kind of city we want to build together. Over the course of the campaign I want to discuss different aspects of what we need to do.

But first, to build anything worthwhile you need to start with a plan. Ideally you'll have a vision of what the final product should look like…

Bill's Vision for Our City

Grande Prairie is a community where neighbours know one another and talk often.

Residents are informed about what's happening in the community & involved in local issues. People who are new to the area are engaged and find it easy to truly become part of the community.

A wide variety of inexpensive local activities make it easy for families to enjoy a healthy work/life balance and maintain healthy & active lifestyles. It's easy & safe to get around the city on foot, by bike, bus or car.

An expanded Muskoseepi park is the emerald jewel in the city's crown of parks, open spaces and natural areas.

Unless they are heading out to enjoy the beautiful wilderness or our region, residents find that they rarely have to leave the city because all the services they need - health care, education, programs for youth and shopping - are here.
