Paul Grenier has filed nomination papers as a candidate for Regional Council in the October 22, 2018 municipal election. Grenier seeks re-election for a seat representing Welland on Regional Council following his success in the 2014 election and builds on his three terms at Welland City Council.
“I understand the fiscal impact the Region has on our city and citizens,” Grenier stated. “While there has been success on some fronts – transit and road investment – there are more ways for Welland to connect with and enhance services provided by the Region. Ambulance services, Housing, and Policing are areas that require continued attention to foster stronger connections to benefit Welland and our community citizens.”
“My experience – 11 years perfect attendance on Welland City Council, 4 years on Regional Council representing Welland and 12 years in the provincial municipal associations including leadership roles – results in our voice being raised and heard in discussions with the province,” observed Grenier.
“Practically, as a current member and Chair of the Long Term Care Task Force (Association of Municipalities of Ontario), and through my on-going role with CanOps (Canadian Public Safety Operations), I’m on the front-lines of building those connections.”
