Re-elect Ian Chadwick

Councillor, Town of Collingwood, 2010

Thanks for your continued support

Thanks to everyone who elected me to Collingwood Council for the past two terms. I did my utmost to live up to your confidence in me, and to represent your interests. I look forward to your continuing support for the 2010-2014 term.


Why I ran again in 2010

In 2003 and 2006, you elected me to represent you on Collingwood Council. Since then, I have strived to provide a rational, considered voice on all issues, to examine all sides, to weigh all pros and cons, and to vote according to what both my analysis and my conscience said was the best choice for the community at large. I will continue to do that when re-elected.

If you are new to the community, please read my page on How to Vote. Collingwood uses a mail-in ballot system and no longer has polling stations. We also vote at large for council, not through a ward system like most of our neighbours.


Where I stand on issues and events

My track record this terms show I have fought for, defended and advocated many issues, institutions and goals during my two terms on council, including smart planning, open meetings, more public input, lower taxes and a sustainable community. I have laid out my stand, as well as my accomplishments, and my goals for the future in those areas.
