Dave's Platform Priorities

FOCUS ON FISCAL RESPONSIBILITY:

Keep taxes as low as possible through good planning, automation, and tight budget controls.

STRONG PUBLIC ENGAGEMENT:

We have been most successful when we have actively sought the views and ideas of residents on plans, projects and City visioning. This will be continued and enhanced.

SUPPORT PROTECTIVE SERVICES:

The RCMP have out grown their facility and are busting at the seams. We need to expand the Protective Services building to provide for their needs and support them. We will be hiring a Crime Analyst in partnership with Leduc County. Also, we should develop a "Safe Community" plan for the City.

SUPPORT LOCAL BUSINESS AND ATTRACT INVESTMENT:

Conduct a review of our Permit and Development approval processes with a goal of achieving a 90% satisfaction rate with City service. Review our Economic Development budget and structure to ensure they provide good value for tax payers.

IMPROVE TRANSPARENCY:

Provide web recording of Council Meetings to enable more resident engagement in municipal decisions and processes.

SUPPORT ARTS AND CULTURE:

Look at Incorporating an Arts Centre as part of our facility needs assessment. Look at initiating a music and culture festival for our City.

 

 

Please look for more of my ideas on on my brochure and on this website
 

  

SURVEY SAYS:

      Council was presented with the Citizen Budget Survey and I have attached parts of it on the link to the right for your reference. While it reflects a widespread approval for the way Council is spending your tax dollars, there is, understandably, a small but growing attitude that service levels and taxes need to be more contained and kept within affordable levels.  This feedback is valuable and important and I take it to heart.


Leduc Pools Update

      The Alexandra outdoor pool is open and the indoor pool is closed for renovations until the Fall. (mid-September).


Leduc - We're growing!

      Growth in the City is continuing and permits and business license issuance is steady. With the new Mall and other development at the Airport, the future remains very promising for our Region.
       Also, Leduc's population has now surpassed 31,000 based on the 2017 census!



       "Please call me if there are any issues in the City that are of concern to you and let's hope for lots of great weather!"

Candidacy Announcement; May 12, 2017

I am excited to formally announce my intention to run for the office of Mayor of Leduc!

Having had the privilege of serving on Council for ten years, I am excited to expand, as your Mayor, both this work and vision to make our City the best it can be. I will be listening and sharing ideas and plans with you in more detail in the near future.

I look forward to meeting with you, as we set our sights towards October and on the following four years!

Thanks,
Dave MacKenzie

 

 

Economic and Political Beliefs

History demonstrates that a free market provides the best and most efficient system to build wealth and preserve freedom.  Government services are necessary but the cost of providing them needs to be minimized.  Generally, the government should not replace or compete with the market economy.

Civic governments are unique in the sense that there is a clear and direct link between services provided and the resident tax payers. Civic governments can provide important leadership, support and resources to many local initiatives. A city is the most flexible and dynamic form of government, being large enough to make important changes to infrastructure, services and quality of life. Strong civic government is a key component of a good quality of life for residents as well as being a key catalyst in attracting business  to the community. Taxes need to be minimized to allow home affordability, business success and sustainability. Excessive taxes, caused by excessive government spending, is the cause of much of the world's problems.
