Charmaine McCraw

A strong voice for Smart Growth and Inspiring Change, that's my motto.

I am running in the upcoming City of Thunder Bay election for the office of Councillor At Large. I intend to visit as many residents as I can. I do not claim to know it all, I will count on you to inform me of what’s important to you. Be the change you want to see. So here I am, a young, university-educated, employed, Irish-Ojibwe woman striving to be that change. My focus will be to represent your views with a strong voice at the council table.

1. Seek out economic development opportunities to provide a spectrum of career opportunities to reduce youth out-migration and decrease tax burden on residents;

2. Understand the lack of available/affordable housing and develop initiatives to encourage home ownership;

3. Increase capacity to care for our Senior population and those dependent on our Health Care delivery systems;

4. Work together to identify personal, relatable paths to reconciliation and develop a media strategy to regain control of the narrative of our beautiful city;

5. Examine Thunder Bay’s shrinking population and strategize initiatives to attract and retain youth, talent and new families.

These are important to me, but what is important to you?
