Dear Cobourg! This might be a first - a candidate writing a song about his home town for the elections! After months of reading, making ads, campaigning, planting lawn signs, I needed a break... I turn to music to relax.
This video's background track has a song that I wrote, composed, and recorded myself (here in Cobourg of course), with my own Cobourg material (videos and photos). A good friend helped with the guitar track, I did the rest on my synthesizer.
Over the next few weeks, I am going to try to come by your residence to you meet in person! If you see me coming to your house, I won't be able to make it up your steps... I would appreciate it, if you see me and wish to discuss something, to just come outside to talk :)
I will be attending Bill Patchett's appreciation lunch on Sept. 15th at CJ's in Cobourg! Please come by to meet and chat with me thereafter (around 3 p.m).
Automated Public Washrooms
Part of the Waterfront District's Final plan is to upgrade and expand public washrooms around the beach area. Why not have a two-tier system? In addition to the free public washrooms that are already there, if new ones are going to be built, it could be beneficial to offer tourists and residents a choice - free or automated pay toilets. After travelling Europe, I wondered why APTs (automated pay toilets) weren't as popular here. It is very common to see APTs everywhere in Europe.
Cobourg is sprouting 'Elect Karl' signs. It was a hot one out yesterday! I managed (with the help of one of my loyal volunteers) to spread out quite a few signs around Cobourg (and vicinity). You can see a distribution map below.
