THUNDER BAY – CIVIC – Hello, I am Frank Pullia and I am running for Councillor at Large. I am proud to have served the citizens of Thunder Bay for two terms on City Council, where my experience and background in financial management, all facets of the industries that form the backbone of our economy, and my ability to get results by working in cooperation with others, have helped keep taxes low while maintaining services and investment in roads and infrastructure.

I believe that new challenges in the areas of crime and community safety, large projects like the Event Centre, the need for better job opportunities for working families and support for small business, will require fiscal prudence and a steady hand that I can bring at the Council table as a Certified Management Accountant with a Master in Business Administration

I am a community activist and over the years I have been involved with many volunteer organizations that are helping create a better quality of life for us all. I am positive about the future of our community and believe that we can develop winning strategies that can make Thunder Bay one of the most livable city in Canada.

We can do this through a full… social, economic, and political partnership with our Aboriginal community…

By protecting our parks, trees, lakes and marine environment…

By fully connecting and expanding the trail system…

By promoting our Arts and Culture community including the Film Industry…

By embracing diversity… and by making Thunder Bay fully accessible to ALL

Thunder Bay has a great potential but the way we handle both challenges and opportunities will affect our future for years to come.

My priorities for our City are:

  • The enhancement of a collaborative relationship with unions and Aboriginal community;
  • Better job opportunities for working families;
  • Better financial management that will enable us to maintain services and investment in roads and infrastructure;
  • Addressing the core issues of crime and community safety;
  • Protecting our environment to ensure a good quality of life for our citizens and our children…

On October 27, help me continue to work on your behalf and make these priorities a reality. Make your vote count…vote Pullia for Councillor at Large!

Thank you for your support!
