Update from Kawartha Lakes Ward 6 Councillor

By Ron Ashmore

2023 was a very busy year, and 2024 is shaping up to be just as busy helping constituents. I had two very successful Town Halls last November and December and will have another one again this year.

The City of Kawartha Lakes covers a huge geographical area and is home to a wide range of citizens and future citizens with both rural and urban backgrounds.

One of the most important areas of Municipal politics, in my view, is Customer Service, which should include not only the digital communications the current administration is working on but also person-to-person contact. Your issue is my issue, regardless of what it is, and my job is to work for you to resolve it.

A successful City depends as much on its residents as it does on its Council. While Council has the responsibility to develop business-friendly bylaws and an open and inviting customer service, really successful municipalities depend on an engaged population. It is vital that you, the residents, enjoy the opportunity to participate in planning for our future as best we can. A great example of this is the 2024-2027 Kawartha Lakes Strategic Plan, which is a very important document, and I encourage everyone to view this document through my website.

As well as day-to-day issues, we are also looking forward to welcoming the World at the 2024 International Plowing Match & Rural Expo coming to Lindsay from Oct 1-5, 2024. This event is always an amazing experience for young and old alike and showcases the importance of our agricultural roots.
