Sam Whittaker wants your vote.
He’s running in Ward 1 and hopes to sit around Port Hope’s council table following the October 22 election.
Whittaker says after being active in the community for years, it was time to try his hand at council.
Whittaker says he sees the west moving towards Port Hope and that the municipality needs to be physically, strategically and financially prepared or they might lose what makes Port Hope special and it would become a bedroom community to the GTA.
He adds that moving forward, the town needs to create fiscally responsible budgets, create a more timeline focused strategy and focus on economic development.
Whittaker is one of 11 candidates in Ward 1.
