Listening is one of the most important parts of being a councillor...
If you have a problem with the city I want to hear about it. From parking tickets to water main breaks, I want to be the person you call.

Hello, my name is Robert Thomson. I am running to be your representative for Ward 5.
The reason I’m running for council is because Ward 5 has been neglected by city hall for too long.
My wife, sons, and I have lived in Ward 5 for the past 16 years. We’ve seen first hand how slow progress can be when we don’t have an effective advocate at council. The reason Ward 5 has been forgotten is because we are not sending a clear message in a clear voice to city hall.
Residents of Barrie pay a lot of taxes. It is frustrating to see our money wasted.
I am tired of seeing improvements made to the rest of our city, while Ward 5 gets nothing to improve our quality of living. I worked in the construction business for most of my life, I understand how to get big projects done on time and under budget.
These are the improvements I want to see happen to make Ward 5 more neighbourhood friendly.
* Strategic Road planning for public safety in neighbourhood.
* Preserve green space for all families to enjoy with smart growth.
* More affordable housing.
* Work with city staff to find inefficiencies to lower taxes.
* Maintain and improve city services.
