No, I have never declared bankruptcy, either personally or with M&M Meatshop, or any other business I’ve been involved with. However, I do wonder if a candidate has had to declare bankruptcy in the past more than once, whether they would be the best candidate to deal with municipal affairs. I personally consider bankruptcy to be a final and last resort, after exploring all other avenues first. There are quite a few job positions that require that you do not have bankruptcy in your past to be employed there, and I feel that a municipal position should be no different.

For the first time Scott Shuttleworth answers questions to the candidates due to internet issues; his answers are:
26. Support Nuisance Program for Fraserville?
I would support a nuisance program especially that it is close to a school
27. Procedure To Handle Concerns From Fellow Citizens
If elected I would field the complaint, make sure the right dept or staff takes care of the issue and of course follow up with the resident (s) to make the issue was taken care. That’s our job to take care of the community.
28. Ward System Better Serve The Residents?
The staffing would be something I would look at. Some residents are concerned about that too when I have been door to door talking to them. I think a ward system would work as Amherstburg covers a lot of area and works in neighbouring communities.
29. Commit To No Public Funds On Barriers; Inclusion.
Everywhere should be accessible for everyone. Simple as that.
