Ron Bodner

I have had the very good fortune to grow up in Ward Four, work here my whole life and raise my family here.  My wife Claire and I married in 1967, have two grown children and one granddaughter.  I have been self-employed all my life and Claire worked as a nurse at the Port Colborne General Hospital and as a visiting nurse in the community.

I will continue to work hard trying to attract new residential, industrial and business growth for both employment and assessment.

We do need to maintain and improve our city in a fiscally responsible way.

I encourage you to contact me with ideas or questions and look forward to working with you to make Port Colborne an even better city in which to live, work and play.

Thank you.

Harry Wells 

I have more than 38 years of experience in the waste management and recycling sector.  As VP of Technology and Development at Newalta I was responsible for developing and implementing Newalta’s Technology Development Strategy for a sustainable future.  In this role I oversaw the Technical Development Team of 9 engineers with industrial and environmental expertise and 4 professional chartered accountants globally focused on the identification of new technologies to grow the Newalta facility network of operations and onsite customer locations. While in this position our team evaluated over 800 new technologies that were projected to generate over $500M in profitable business opportunities in the areas of wastewater treatment, solids recovery, oil recovery and alternative energy for Newalta to initiate and implement.

Prior to this role, I was the VP of Eastern Canada for Newalta with 19 operating facilities and more than 2,500 employees in Ontario, Quebec and the maritime provinces. Prior to being the VP for Newalta I was the VP of Canada for Philip Environmental Services, GM for Republic Environmental, GM and owner of Hevmet Recovery and Ops manager for Syntath Environmental Ltd. During this time I designed and built the Syntath and Hevmet waste management and recovery facilities and managed a number of operational development projects for PSC Republic.

I hold Bachelor of Physical Education and Bachelor of Education degrees with distinction from Brock University and a Chemical Engineering Technology degree from Niagara College.

While pursuing my formal education, my spare time was spent participating in competitive motorcycling and gymnastics. During my athletic career I earned the Canadian National Trampoline Champion title for Canada three times and ranked 10th in the World. In motorcycling I won the 1983 National Enduro title and sponsorship by Suzuki Canada. 

In addition to my environmental career and athletic achievements, I have been married for 43 years and raised 4 children and am the grandfather to 6 grandchildren.
