INGERSOLL - The race is heating up for a seat on Ingersoll's Town Council
Rick Eus is one of 13 people in the running. He says he would bring more openness and accountability to the Ingersoll Town Council.
"Over the past 4 years that I have been attending council meetings, there has been some come forward but I also want to bring more. The town residents need to be more involved with our council and the decisions in which they make and they need to understand as to the reasons why those decisions are being made. With better open transparency people will have a better understanding of how and why those decisions are made."
Eus says he is not a fan of the recent boundary adjustment.
"I'd like to have another look at that, I don't believe it is financially viable for the Town of Ingersoll to do what they are currently doing, I think it needs to have more of a benefit for the Town of Ingersoll. From what I've heard and what I have seen at council meetings, it just seems to be more one sided. The other issue for me is the multi use recreational centre. I understand and I agree that we need another arena in Ingersoll, however we need to look at partnering, we need to look at donations and we need to look at other options that are going to limit the tax burden on the local residents here in Ingersoll."
Eus has lived in Ingersoll all of his life and has volunteered for many organizations, currently sitting on the Police Services Board and is a former President of the Colombo Club of Oxford and Beachville.
