Sasha is politically attune, business savvy & family-centered.
She has spent the better part of her career in politics at the federal level working for Conservative Members of Parliament; however, she is also an entrepreneur and property manager having started her own successful businesses & made smart investments in real estate.
Sasha & Christian live with their three boys, Conrad, Conan & Caleb, & Sasha's brother Josh, on their 80-acre hobby farm in Woodlawn, ON.
LINKED IN PROFILE
With cost-of-living increases making life unaffordable, we need to prioritize keeping taxes & city fees as low as possible. Reducing fees & red tape are essential for economic recovery.
Our rural roads need attention for the safety of our residents, families & seniors who commute to school, work, activities & appointments.
Access to affordable recreation activities is essential for keeping our communities physically & mentally well. This is especially important given post-pandemic recovery.
YOUR PRIORITIES MATTER TO SASHA
Being a City Councillor is not all about Sasha's priorities, it's about listening to what matters to you & delivering solutions to your concerns. Please reach out to tell Sasha how she can best represent you & your family at the City Hall table.
Meet Sasha and her family on their hobby farm in Woodlawn to understand why she wants to run for City Council. As a fiscal conservative, wife, mother, and small business owner, she understands the concept of living within our means while making sure the core services we deserve and expect are maintained. Sasha will continue to build our community that was given to us by the generations of honest hardworking people who came before us.
OPEN LINE OF COMMUNICATION
Sasha has had a very strong work ethic for her entire career, both in politics and in business. She will always keep an open line of communication with West Carleton - March residents and work hard to serve you everyday.
FIGHT FOR FAIRNESS
A common theme Sasha hears from West Carleton - March residents is that there are a lot of resources devote to urban center projects, leaving so much more to be done for our rural area. Sasha will fight to see that we are given our fair share of the budget to maintain and even improve the core services we count on & deserve. For example, roads, emergency management services (fire, ambulance, police), and recreation.
Sasha is very concerned about the LRT project. It has been plagued with problems, hugely expensive, and going to affect our tax rates in general going forward. Sasha looks forward to receiving the report from the public inquiry and acting on those recommendations to ensure the taxpayers and the City in general are getting the best value for their dollar.
ACCESS TO AFFORDABLE RECREATION
Given the increases in cost-of-living, it is so important that we maintain access to affordable recreation to keep our communities vibrant and active. Thank you to the many community centers and countless volunteers in West Carleton - March for all the work you do.
A HEALTHY ENVIRONMENT
Farmers and residents of West Carleton have been good stewards of the land and have always practiced conservation with the environment in mind. As a mom, small business owner & hobby farmer, I want clean air, clean water, and clean, healthy soil for future generations.
Affordable housing is two-fold. One is the ability for working people making good salaries to find affordable houses or rent in West Carleton - March. Two is social housing.
We have a supply problem in Ottawa. There are far too few units for people looking for affordable accommodation.
On social housing, we need to work with experts in the field to make sure that families who currently do not housing or are living in motels or hotels can find a permanent home. The provincial and federal government need to come to the table with funding to look after people in these desperate situations. The City of Ottawa taxpayers have always been generous, however, the municipal budget cannot financially sustain a solution to this on its own. As a compassionate and caring person, I do not want to see anyone homeless.
WHY VOTE SASHA DUGUAY
Thank you for taking the time to meet with Sasha or one of her team members at your door over these past weeks. If we missed you, please call anytime. Sasha is working hard everyday to earn your vote on October 24th, and the same can be said for her when she hits the ground running as your Councillor at City Hall. Sasha will fight for the rural residents of West Carleton - March day-in and day-out.
