Buying A Bus Pass

Patricia Simone’s video buying a bus pass at Amherstburg town hall.

This week’s River Town Times ad referring to ‘mobile device.’

Several emails were sent to Transit Windsor and the City of Windsor trying to obtain clarification. The closest answer was, “I am not exactly sure what you are asking me.  If you are referring to what type of mobility devices are allowed on the bus, than that is an easy question to answer.”

Maybe more training is needed to prevent town employees from using outdated language like ‘handicap accessible’ and generating information that should inform people, not confuse them.  

A Look Back – Candidate Patricia Simone

We had ‘A Look Back’ at Aldo DiCarlo, who is not seeking re-election; now let’s take a look back at candidate Patricia Simone and her SimoneforAburg site.

My Pledge to Amherstburg included:

  • Elected official must direct town employees and administration toward the objectives of the residents. As your elected official, I promise that the taxpayers’ agenda will govern my decisions and I will stand up for the community at town hall.
  • Discussion with elected representatives is important. As your elected official, I promise to be available to answer any questions you may have.
  • Transparency:
    • I believe in open government that communicates with its residents.
    • Information should be readily available.
    • Notice of meetings and proceedings at town hall should be better advertised.
    • We need live streaming of council meetings for those who cannot attend at town hall.
    • I will conduct a complete review of our communication processes to ensure our residents are getting the information they need.

Simone’s other page, My Platform includes:

Consultation

Resident consultation committees have been eliminated. This is the wrong way to go. We need more consultation with residents, not less. I will support the creation of consultation committees that invite input from residents, while maintaining that the final decision-making authority remain in the hands of the elected Council.
