I am Sheldon Fingler and I am running for Mayor of Morinville. I was born, raised and educated in Morinville and have chosen to live, work and play in this community that I love. I am a family man and father of three school aged children. I have worked as a public works foreman and also launched my own business that I have built from the ground up and run successfully for 25 years. I know what it means to meet payroll, provide employment, and responsibly manage the everyday realities of running a successful business in a highly competitive marketplace.
Why I am running. I want to make Morinville a residential destination of choice and an attractive and affordable community with the best possible quality of life for young and growing families, seniors and singles. What do I bring? Strong leadership. I am approachable and I listen. People have often approached me to take a leadership role. I am prepared to get the facts and make decisions. I stay focused on the major issues and follow through.
I am listening to the issues and concerns of citizens. There are a number of areas that need attention. We need to focus on getting the best possible value for our tax dollars, we need to make strategic recreational and cultural investments, we need to undertake thoughtful economic development initiatives and we also need to pay careful attention to community safety strategies.
I am running because I believe in Morinville. I am dedicated to Morinville. I am focused on results. I know and respect our past and I am committed to what we can become together.
On election day I ask you to Vote Sheldon Fingler for Mayor.
Dedicated to Morinville and Committed to Results!
