Hello Richmondite's, I am Patrick Saunders and I have lived in Richmond for 49 of my 51 years, I have 3 school age children one with global challenges. I have travelled to 5 of 7 continents giving me a global perspective. I am running council again as I still feel it needs balance, social justice, and common sense to practical problems found in our city. Rather than the Right verses Left or large special interest groups drowning out smaller ones.
I want Richmondite's to RETHINK and stop the window dressing approach to affordable housing and introduce a third more viable option of public or private owned leasehold.
I want Richmondite's to RETHINK permanent taxation and introduce Levy's that citizens vote on not politicians that would have a start and stop dates.
I want Richmondite's to RETHINK and relocate the vitally needed boxed in Richmond General Hospital.
Thank-you a commonsense approach.
