Questions About Joe

Just some of the personal questions people have asked when we’ve been out knocking doors.

Yes he does. Joe lives in the Creditview and Rathburn area where has resided with his family for many years.

Joe is 45 even if he doesn’t look it.

Seriously though, there are no parties in Ontario municipal governments and Joe considers himself a middle-of-the-road moderate.  His finance background means he cares about good fiscal management, but he is also a champion for issues such as enhanced public transit.

Joe has been pretty busy lately, but prior to being elected he used to like to watch City Council meetings. — No really.
