Ward 1 Councillor Dave Elliott

I would like to thank the residents of Ward 1 for placing their trust and confidence in me. I will, through honesty, integrity, and a willingness to listen, earn their respect. Being a representative of the people is an enormous responsibility. I accept this and will work diligently on behalf of my ward.

The City of Port Colborne finds itself in a time of transition. We are changing, growing, developing. This is a time of great hope and enthusiasm. We are seeing neighbourhoods and residents taking ownership of the desire to improve not only the City in which we live, but their lives as well. There is much work to be done, and I thank you for giving me the opportunity to be your voice in this time of change.

I look forward to representing all of the residents of Ward 1 in Council Chambers. It is incumbent upon me, as your elected representative, to reflect your wishes in response to matters before council. I will base my judgements on three criteria ... 1) Is it good for the residents of Ward 1?    2) Is it good for the City of Port Colborne?    3) Are we being fiscally responsible?

It is my goal to see the City of Port Colborne prosper. With that, we need new development, added and expanded retailers, and new employment opportunities. Lastly, but maybe most importantly, we need to give our youth hope and inspiration. May we, as a council, work together to see these successes in our City.

Feel free to contact me with any questions or concerns that you may have. It is my privilege to be able to answer and address these for you. I look forward to hearing from you.

John Mayne

By trade, I am an Industrial Plumber, retired from TRW St Catharines after 37 years. Mickey and I owned and operated Mayne’s, a Downtown retail business for 19 years and I continue to be a Downtown property owner.

My community involvement includes 25 years as a Port Colborne Volunteer Firefighter, Chair of the former Marina Board, executive member of the Port Colborne Wainfleet Chamber of Commerce and member of the Downtown BIA.

As a Councillor for Ward 1, my priorities will be transparency, accountability and sound stewardship practices in public office.

I look forward to serving the residents of Ward 1 and the City of Port Colborne – together we can improve our community, our home.
