Thank you for your emails. If you were a regular constituent I would be pleased to answer any questions you may have on the work I do on Newmarket and York Region Councils on behalf of Newmarket residents. However, as you have declared yourself a candidate in the upcoming municipal election, I am sure you can understand my reluctance to engage with you during the campaign period.
I wish you all the best.

Hello again Tom
I am grateful for your reply which is, I am afraid, totally inadequate.
You say you will not answer my questions because (a) I am candidate and (b) we are in the campaign period.
This is precisely when you should be engaging with me and explaining your decision to accept developers’ money to fund your campaigns.
Will you give a commitment to join me on a public platform to debate the issues?
I am copying this to Joseph Quigley at Newmarket Today.
