Good government doesn't waste good ideas
A commitment to leverage ideas and talent, regardless of political color
"Throwing out the good work of any government or repeating work that has already been done shows a complete lack of management experience and lack of common sense."
Economic growth requires deal-making experience – a sense of urgency
A mindset focused on long term outcomes, a real return on investment in dollars or services versus votes
"I'm ready to go, training wheels are not required. I do not need the typical 2-year orientation period of a new government."
Language diversity in our schools and buses is a good thing
A true cultural experience that sets us apart
"It's progressive education for our kids, and I'm all for it. It takes experience to deal fairly with sensitive issues."
Measured performance leads to better results
A report card on actual performance for all to see
"Honesty, transparency and accountability are hallmarks of success to achieve results. I will deliver what is needed for this province."
Alignment and Transparency will ensure success
A continuous self-diagnosis of outcomes versus expectations
"With an ongoing philosophy of improvement, we will adjust as necessary to ensure we achieve success."
Experts with accountable mandates will achieve more
A commitment to give experts the tools and time they need to succeed
"No premier has all the solutions. I will utilize experts inside and outside of government and we will be accountable for the results."
Regional and cultural diversity can expand our economy
A push for increased export and business activity from all regions of the province
"Our North is hours away from millions in Quebec. This must be an advantage to pursue."
Skills-matching will fuel growth and sustainability
A tactical matching of skills training with job needs in all regions
"Private university and college enrollments has stayed the same or increased, while public universities have seen a decline. I do not believe the new free tuition program of this government will solve the real problem."
The solutions are right here in New Brunswick
A call to action for anyone with ideas (in or out of government) to move us forward
"I need your help. Let's mobilize our best assets and get the job done. It is time for action. We were well on that road and the culture of performance was growing. I want to get back on that plan."
