We can make our tax dollars work a lot harder. I am encouraging everyone to ask each candidate, if elected, will they support the creation and implementation of a Social Procurement Policy?
Let’s elect leaders who will ensure that every one of our tax dollars, is fully leveraged to reflect our values, while also re-localizing and revitalizing the Valley’s economy.
To learn a little more visit bit.ly/1tCayFm and learn how taxpayer dollars, that we are spending anyway, can be fully leveraged.
For example, to create apprenticeships for youth, to supply local food to public institutions, or to provide local businesses with easier access to municipal contract opportunities.
I am not endorsing any one candidate in the local elections. My goal is solely to inspire action by providing education about the possibilities and power of social public procurement.
