“As a 43-year resident of Ward 3, I have seen our representation on council diminish over the past two terms. The hamlets and villages of rural north Pickering, as well as the ever-growing community of Seaton deserve better. That’s why I am supporting Peter Rodrigues for Regional Councillor, Ward 3.
Peter listens to constituents and responds. He is open, transparent, and respectful, ready to work for the residents of the ward. He does not accept money from developers and will base decisions on what is best for the community he serves, not the developers he owes. He opposes rampant growth and bad planning, both sprawl and tall, decries the secret meetings that have become a hallmark of Pickering council, and has never wavered in his opposition to an airport on the Federal Lands.
I have known Peter for years. He is honest as the day is long.”
“Peter understands the communities and their needs in Pickering, and is dedicated to promoting growth for local and regional communities. We sincerely thank him for his help and dedication to the people of the City of Pickering and Durham Region.”
“I’m supporting Peter because his years of experience and demonstrated commitment to Pickering will make him our effective voice on council.”
“Peter Rodrigues, as regional councillor in my ward (Ward 3) from 2010 to 2014, was approachable and always helpful, going the extra distance to get answers to questions of all kinds, and then replying in detail.
I appreciated his honesty and his efforts to understand the wide variety of issues that came before Council. He did his homework. He represented us well, and especially kept us advised, well in advance, of matters coming before Council that pertained to our area, so that we could attend Council meetings and participate in the discussion.
As that rare phenomenon, a full-time councillor, he was easily reachable and made it his business to attend or participate in local meetings and events of all kinds, day or evening, working closely with local groups as our link with City Hall. We miss his efforts to keep us informed and linked to municipal politics, which are often ignored by residents but are, in fact, highly pertinent to our daily lives, involving everything from decisions on playgrounds or the height of a fence to much larger issues that directly affect our quality of life and the taxes we pay.”
