Carpenter wants to help build his community

Village of Cumberland; Sullivan, Sean – Council candidate

Sean Sullivan

As a resident of the Valley for the last 15 years, I am thankful everyday that we get to live in such a beautiful place.

I am a carpenter working and living in Cumberland and have the distinct pleasure to be able to help restore some of Cumberland’s stunning heritage buildings, both business and residential. It’s extremely vital to protect and promote this incredible heritage and at the same time, to support the growth that has welcomed and made space for new residents.

To maintain this balance, village council needs to ensure Responsible, Accountable, Development (RAD) and be sure to respect the things that makes this community so special.

As a perennial volunteer and musician, I have been actively engaged in sustaining and supporting the cultural life of our community. I am very active and consider our forest, parks and recreation facilities to be another of our Village’s greatest assets. Continuing the tireless efforts to preserve and protect our natural environment in Cumberland is also paramount. I look forward for an opportunity to return the favour to the Village that has provided me with so much.

The trail starts here!

Sean can be contacted at throughout his campaign.
