Sofia, who will be starting at the University of Windsor and his son Sebastian who will be attending St. Joseph High school and finally, their cat Zuzu.

ACCESSIBLE CLEAN SAFE STREETS AND PARKS
The cornerstone of any great community is clean and safe public spaces that are accessible to all, especially our seniors and kids. Angelo feels it is important to support initiatives that enrich our community. Forest Glade and East Riverside has one of the largest senior communities and it is crucial that our parks are maintained especially our pathways and sidewalks. Better amenities such as improving public transit in the Forest Glade and East Riverside area. Angelo will focus on improving our current assets such as our trails, parks and beach which have been neglected for too long. Building healthy communities for our families to live, grow and play. Angelo will crack down on careless speeders on our streets especially Banwell, Wyandotte St East, Little River Blvd, McHugh St., Forest Glade Dr., Wildwood, Mulberry Dr. to name a few. Road safety is crucial in our community. Angelo wants to empower you by listening to your concerns and then connecting with the people we need to satisfy your concern.
MAKING WINDSOR BETTER
Angelo Marignani believes we need to improve as a city. Angelo will look at best practices that are currently being employed by other communities that are successfully attracting industries such as Medical Sciences, manufacturing, and the technology sectors. Angelo will promote our Community Incentive Programs especially in the field of Health Sciences and Medicine. We have an aging population and to ensure our seniors have security, we must attract these amenities that will accommodate all residents, allowing for a quality of life that you deserve. Angelo has heard your concerns about our city's infrastructure--we must improve our basement flooding program and be proactive as storms are becoming more severe. Improving our East/West corridors especially Riverside Drive, Tecumseh Road and Forest Glade Drive. We must enhance our curb appeal if we want to sell Windsor to potential investors, businesses and newcomers. For example, Tecumseh road between Banwell and Lauzon Road should be changed from a four lane to a six lane road with dedicated left and right turning lanes this will ease traffic congestion. Tecumseh Rd. for example can be improved by putting up sound barriers in front of the fences of Forest Glade homes and a Ganatchio trail type path in front of the sound barrier making it clean, safe and improving the curbside appeal. These changes in infrastructure will greatly improve the quality of life for the residents of Forest Glade who are faced with noise pollution from both the traffic and the trains. When we make our city attractive, it stimulates economic growth. An example of this occurred when the city decided to beautify Coventry gardens with the Peace Fountain in1974. As a result, 5 new condominiums were built across from it which is one of the highest concentrations of tax revenue for the city.
Angelo will take a common sense approach with our road construction. For example, the new roundabout being installed at the Mulberry/Banwell intersection. Angelo will work towards finally getting a grade separated intersection at the Expressway and more importantly at this point in time a westbound dedicated on-ramp to help with the congestion that occurs at peak hours. Other areas of focus regarding infrastructure would be speeding and traffic enforcement, urban planning that incorporates bike paths and better public transit as well as improvement to both Sandpoint Beach, Little River Corridor, Stillmeadow Park, Blue Heron Park and Optimist Park to name a few.
FINANCIAL RESPONSIBILITY TO YOU
Angelo will support prioritizing our tax dollars on our current assets and putting a hold on big ticket items. Angelo will work hard for the taxpayers to build strong neighborhoods, job creation/retention, clean, safe and healthy parks. Angelo will review our costs and make sure we are efficiently spending our tax dollars as well as receiving full utilization of our services and assets. For example, we need to stop digging up roads one year only to go back the following year and dig it up again. Angelo will continue to reduce our debt as his 17 year business experience has taught him that this is equal to security and attractive to investors. Reviewing our utility costs Angelo will look into removing fixed surcharges from our bills and charge only for what we use. This will promote conservation of our resources and reward those who conserve, ultimately helping our families on fixed incomes as well as our environment
