George Karpouzis

Councillor Candidate | Ward 2

What does a Councillor do for the people of Stouffville?
A councillor has to be a representative for every constituent in his/her ward. He/she must be accessible and transparent to every constituent. A councillor is the steward of the ward’s finances and must help the ward move forward with all responsible development.

Why would you be good at this job?
I would be a great candidate because of my standing in the community as a business owner and friend and associate to the thousands of constituents in my ward. I have lived in the ward for close to 20 years and have nothing but the ward’s interest in my heart. I pledge to all my constituents that I’d be the most accessible councillor that this ward has ever seen.

What issues are you concerned about?
The issues that concern me the most are community safety, increased town services and responsible development.

Why should the people of Stouffville share your concerns?
People should share my concerns with responsible development because not protecting the greenbelt and the Oak Ridges Moraine would create an ecological disaster for stouffville. Community and road safety affects every constituent directly.

Describe what a successful term with you as Councillor would accomplish?
A successful term for me would be increased town services for the constituents of Ward 2 like fire services. Safer roads and safer communities with less crime will definitely be an objective. And most importantly curbing irresponsible development that doesn’t have the greenbelt and Oak Ridges Moraine in mind.
