A Fresh Perspective
Fighting for Our Community
& Our Children’s Future
In ever-changing times of crisis, don’t we deserve the best leadership possible?
Avia Eek is a Holland Marsh farmer whose common sense approach to problems is similar to her approach to farming – make decisions based upon what is workable today and beneficial for tomorrow. It’s called long-term vision and planning – something farmers have employed for centuries and something that runs deeply in the Holland Marsh and its farmers.
Avia is active in a number of organizations throughout the area – but has been noted for being the province’s most prolific farmer tweeters, recognizing that social media engages a new generation of future consumers, decision makers, voters, and stakeholders.
A proven leader – she sits on the Holland Marsh Growers’ Association Board of Directors and has taken a no-nonsense, long-standing position about the peaker plant since it was first proposed, Avia has learned that governments, at any level, don’t need to be just the “same old, same old”. Avia wants more transparency, not less; planning that works and moves forward instead of being stalled in the what if scenarios that seem to cripple any movement, and a council that follows up on its promises and commitments.
Ellen Glasgow, a noted American author at the turn of the last century, once said, “All change is not growth, as all movement is not forward.” More than 100 years later, those words resonate quite clearly for the residents of
We need a better King – one that stands for tradition, built upon history, and progressively looking at our future with a clear vision, a clear mandate, and a council that fights for its residents and fellow citizens without the taint of politics getting in the way.
An old farmer saying sums Avia up best – If nothing ever changed, there’d be no butterflies.
