my name is Stephen McKay, independent candidate seeking your vote for Windsor
Town Council. I'm running as an independent because I am not interested in
getting sucked into petty party politics, I am however interested in presenting
ideas that I believe would contribute to the long term prosperity of our
community. My folks always told me to either do something to improve the
situation or don't complain. So, here I am.
My platform is simple and to the point:
More Transparency — Open meetings.
Accountability — Budget documents should be easily accessible and searchable so residents can see specifically where their tax dollars are being spent.
Responsive — Answer citizens questions and concerns quickly and honestly.
Reduce Waste — Speaks for itself.
My political philosophy is simple and straightforward.
I believe government squanders too much of our hard-earned money, burying many working families in debt. As a small business owner, I know what it takes to get things done on a shoestring. I understand what it takes to maintain a stringent budget and I would like to be at the table looking out for my fellow residents and taxpayers.
I am not running against anyone or against a specific party. I am, however, running for the future of my family, friends and my fellow Windsor citizens. I believe that independent thinking and candidates unencumbered by party influence will help lead our community to a brighter future. Ultimately, I want Windsor to be the kind of hometown that my children will one day be able to afford to buy a home in, raise families in and send their children to successful and safe public schools with high academic standards.
I would like to analyze the issues at hand, seek outside counsel when appropriate and base my decisions on a core set of principles that best serve the community as a whole while maintaining important individual freedoms.
I look forward to listening to your thoughts and hopefully garner you support. If you are interested in helping me on this quest please contact me at email@example.com or call me directly at 860.547.0773. Thank you for your time and consideration.
