Paul Whiteside — New Tecumseth deputy mayor

I, J.J. Paul Whiteside, am running for the office of deputy mayor in New Tecumseth as I have the required knowledge and experience to provide fiscally responsible representation at both the town and Simcoe County levels.

Being retired, I have the time to continue to listen to the concerns and suggestions of residents and businesses. I am a lifetime resident of Alliston and have served the community in many aspects including 17 years on the SMH Board (past president). I am a retired professional accountant (FCPA, FCMA) having several years of related experience in the accounting and municipal fields. In 2009, I retired after 28 years as the town’s chief financial officer/treasurer. I have served eight years as Ward 3 councillor and in 2018 served as the alternate Simcoe County councillor. During my term as councillor, I have served on the following committees: library board, physician recruitment committee, property standards/canine control committee, Alliston Memorial Arena Task Force, OSUM conference committee and New Tecumseth Improvement Society.

As deputy mayor, I will make the full-time commitment to serve and work with the residents of New Tecumseth to make the town a better place. I am a global thinker and consensus builder who is perceptive to the ideas of others and will work in the best interest of our town. I am an experienced leader who is accountable and transparent and will provide financial and business acumen.

My priorities include: Negotiating a new Collingwood water agreement; ensuring tax and utility rates remain reasonable; managing implications of rapid growth; public transit and traffic concerns; water pipeline to Tottenham; Beeton drainage issues.

It is imperative that council work jointly with other municipalities, our MPP and MP on the important issues.

On Oct. 22, elect J.J. Paul Whiteside deputy mayor for “leadership you can trust.”
