(SAULT STE MARIE, ON – July 19, 2018): I am running to continue to represent Sault Ste. Marie’s west end. As a lifelong resident in the old Ward 6, and new Ward 5, I want to continue to advocate for my neighbours at City Council.
Since my appointment to City Council on June 26, 2017, I have fought for lower taxes, lower development costs, and to clean up City Hall. Among the achievements I’m most proud of since joining Council:
Voting against a tax increase in the 2018 budget that Council approved;
Trying to get information on potential nepotism hiring at City Hall which Council rejected;
Looking into selling off excess City laneways;
Exploring the development of a skating trail system in Sault Ste. Marie;
Voting against development charges, supporting re-zonings, supporting lower building permit fees, and encouraging development in our community.
“You can count on me to be the voice of those who are tired of ever-increasing taxes, tired of the old way of doing things at City Hall, and tired of the status quo” said Grandinetti.
Grandinetti says: “City Council, and Ward 5 specifically, doesn’t need Councillors who will take the easy way out and vote to increase your taxes, increase City expenses and make life harder for residents. You know my record, you know where I stand. I’ll keep fighting for you at City Hall.”
I’d be honoured to continue to serve as Ward 5 Councillor and will work to earn your vote in the coming months.
