2022 election priorities

From his website:

  • Roads
  • Affordable Housing
  • Homelessness
  • Improving life in Thurlow

More schools

Push for more schools in Ward 2 saying the area was growing fast and both Harmony and Foxboro public schools were overcrowded, creating problems for both staff and students

In the past, the current council has been sitting on certain issues and taking too long to get things done, or even not doing anything at all, especially in Ward 2. It’s not hard to tell that we get neglected in Ward 2. Ward 1 gets new or updated parks and splash pads often, but what does Thurlow get? The people of Belleville in both Wards deserve someone who isn’t afraid to speak up and stir the pot to make sure things get done. We need new people inside City Hall who have a different vision for our beautiful city. If elected, I will work for the people of Belleville and make sure your concerns and ideas to improve the quality of life in both wards are met. 

How do you address the housing crisis?

Personal life

Clark has 4 daughters.
