This post is the eighth in a series in which we reached out to municipal candidates to ask their heritage platform. Responses will be posted in the order received.
The eighth to respond was Dan Mokrzycki, Candidate for Windsor City Council – Ward 9. The responses are in the candidate’s own words only slightly edited in a way that doesn’t in any way change what they said.
Windsor definitely has not done enough for heritage conservation and preservation. We need to do more. Windsor council seems to be putting money towards things such as bronze statues of people who most of Windsor hasn’t ever heard of, but the places that require preservation are being closed and abandoned.
My favourite memory is growing up and going for walks through Devonwood conservation area with my mother and late father, and looking at the different wildlife, trees and wild plants. Unfortunately, this conservation area has not gotten much attention lately, and has been full of litter, trash, among other dangerous items and I feel like city council should make it a priority to clean these areas up for families to enjoy once again. This would be one of my many main topics of discussion if elected to council.
