Sandy Brown has been a resident of Orangeville for 26 years. Raised his family here and has been involved in our community for over 20 years including Past President and Current Member of the Orangeville Lions Club, Past President of the Orangeville Minor Hockey Association, Co-Chair of the Orangeville Lions Seven Bridges Run, Past Chair of the Volunteer Advisory Committee of the CNIB Lake Joseph Camp, Past Member of the Town of Orangeville Committee of Adjustment, Past Committee Member – Visions Support Group for the Visually Impaired. Current member of Friends of Island Lake. Supporter of Orangeville Food Bank. Sandy’s philosophy is put in more than you take out.
Sandy has over 40 years experience in manufacturing, general management and sales and marketing management. He is a self employed realtor with RE/MAX – and owns and is developing rental properties with his son Spencer and is currently developing a Self Storage facility with partners.
Sandy hopes to bring his real world business experience to Town Council to try and find creative ways to stop the ever increasing burden of municipal taxes on the Citizens of Orangeville. There are creative ways to minimize reductions in service while realizing significant savings in the Town budget.
He hopes to bring integrity, honesty, collaboration, transparency and respect back to the Office of Mayor of the Town of Orangeville. Sandy looks forward to working collaboratively with Town Staff, Town Council and County Council to facilitate positive changes to make the lives of the citizens of Orangeville and Dufferin County better.
Sandy intends to focus on affordable housing, long term care for seniors, youth engagement, public safety, infrastructure improvement, building back reserve funds and hoping that down the road when it comes to municipal taxation Orangeville residents can yell “We’re Average!” instead of the current refrain “We’re Number One!”.
If elected Sandy intends to work full time in the Mayor’s position. The Mayor’s position also includes a position on the Police Services Board. Sandy would not be seeking the Chair of the Police Services Board, a board seat is sufficient and will allow the Mayor to take part in and represent the Town appropriately on Police matters.
