Business issues drive mayoral debate

On Thursday, October 9, 2014, in conjunction with the DBIA and Women’s Business Network, the
Peterborough Chamber of Commerce hosted a mayoral debate.  

15 questions pertaining to business issues, from job creation to availability of land to transit to the experience needed to be Mayor were asked of five of the six mayoral candidates in front of a crowd of about 200 at The Venue.   

The Chamber has identified 10 areas of concern in this election:  

 

  1. Broader Community Vision 
  2. Business Corridors (Downtown, Lansdowne, Chemong, Industrial Park)
  3. Employment & Job Creation
  4. Finances
  5. Infrastructure (roads, bridges, etc)
  6. Inter-government Relations & Government Accountability
  7. Interest Arbitration Process
  8. Planning Process (What can be done to make it easier for business?)
  9. Transportation
  10. Taxation & Development Charges
