MAYORAL CANDIDATE MATT MARCHAND CALLS FOR ROTATING CITY COUNCIL MEETINGS ACROSS THE CITY

Posted on: July 6th, 2018

Today, Matt Marchand announced that as part of his platform for Mayor for the City of Windsor, and in the best interests of transparency and accountability as well as public access to community debate, he will hold one council meeting per quarter at a rotating location outside of City Hall’s Council Chambers.

Vision: Bring City Council closer to the people.

Plan: Initiate rotating City Council meetings, once a quarter for four meetings total per year, at different locations across the City.

Action: Implement rotating City Council meetings within the first 100 days of taking office.

“The campaign has started consultations with the community. In doing this, we see the gap between residents and decision-makers. Together, we can bring City government closer to the people and encourage communication. We want to get Council out into the community to listen to and hear what the community is saying,” said Marchand.

This is the first in a series of policy platforms and ideas to be released between now and Election Day.
