  • Elect James Palmer 2010 Bring Ward 5 Alive!
    I am running for Councillor of Ward 5, because the City needs renewed prosperity and passion.

    As a homeowner, husband, and lifelong resident of our community, I understand what really makes up Barrie, its people. My promise to you, both as Councillor and neighbour, is to promote your ideas and opinions, while keeping your best interests in mind. Between work and family activities I know it is difficult for most of us to attend Council Meetings, and stay up to date with City changes; with your support that will be my responsibility.


    Together during the week of October 18th-25th, 2010, let’s Bring Ward 5 Alive! Vote for prosperity, vote for passion.

    Running for the future of our families,

    ~James Palmer
  • Jeffrey Waye - Green Vote - Ward 7
    My name is Jeffrey Waye and I am running for election for Ward 7.

    The singular, most troubling issue that I have is our government’s lack of commitment to the environment. I find it unacceptable that we mismanage our green spaces. Arguably, our city planning department follows a policy of “obedience” to industry. For too long there has been a generalized disregard! Just look at our language: we talk about “empty land” – which we know is far from empty and in fact teem with non-human life.

    I have great concern for the future of our fields, forests, marshes and farmlands. All of these are threatened in Barrie’s plan for growth. But, we don’t have to continue down this road. We need larger vision and we need leaders with enough backbone to say “NO” to developers and to the short-term interests that threaten the balance of nature. It is a cost that we do not have the right to impose upon our children!

    As Abraham Lincoln said, “You cannot escape the responsibility of tomorrow by evading it today.” What will the future of Barrie be like 20 years from now if we do not act? As counsellor I will be a voice for long-term sustainability. I will resist destructive developments.

    If you are concerned for our fragile environment, I urge you to vote for Jeffrey Waye, Ward 7.
  • Kevin Richards for WARD 1
    My pledge & promise to you is that you will matter to me and I will represent you and your issues at City Hall. I believe that when I take a stand and a position on any issue that it will be with honesty and integrity as the foundation of any of my platforms. Council decisions require majority support so I will not personally promise anything that is dependent on other council members, but I will promise your voice will be heard. I also promise to do as much research as possible into every issue and promise that I make.

    Barrie is a vibrant, dynamic and energetic city with remarkable potential.

    I’ve been proud to call Barrie my home since moving here more than thirty six years ago and have worked to make it an even better place to live, work and raise a family.

    I love Barrie and it’s why I want to be your mayor.

    Being mayor requires a number of different skills‚ but the most important is remembering who you work for – you and the citizens of Barrie.

    It’s about listening‚ being involved in the community and working together to make this city a better place.
