These are screenshots of two web sites I designed for the Conservative EDA. These were templates on a Mambo Core. I have also designed the current site that operates on a Joomla Core.
While once again it is getting to be that time for my annual trip to Toronto. This year I am spending 5 nights in Toronto. I have not done up my itinerary yet, but top on my list of things to see is the Hockey Hall of Fame, a Mervisch Play, and Queen’s Square in Toronto. Wow, can’t you just smell the sweet scent of a Federal Election? Unfortunately, I’ll be in Toronto during the CSM but hopefully, the Election call will be shortly after I return. And when I return LiveSaintJohn.ca is going to get up and running. I will spend a little time adding content, and restaurant reviews.CIAO FOR NOW… CEFM

Many people have asked me what was it like to run for Mayor of Saint John. The answer was that it was a time of a life time. I was privileged to meet everyone that I did meet. I now have a greater respect for Saint John and the issues about it. I thought that I knew a lot about Saint John from reading the news, and watching council, and working in the community. There are others that thought I would have been better off running for council, but with the total number of people running, and the fact was there where much better people who were running for council with the knowledge and ability to do this city well. To be quite honest the councillors that were elected were some of the best of the crop. Out of the 50 there was actually only about 17 that I thought…
The last week has been very busy campaigning. But at last it comes to an end. I was planning on having a special dinner today with my Mother but she decided to leave town. Today I am going out for dinner with my aunt. Then heading into town to do Too Close to Call like I normally do every Sunday. Also I’m excited about the election tomorrow, and that I am leaving for Toronto on Wednesday.
The last three days have been very interesting. I had the opportunity to meet with many Saint Johners, and received a lot of good feed back. I was saddened to learn that I was not considered by the Fire Department, as I believe my plan would benefit the Fire Department the most out of any candidate.

Thursday 27 September 2001 Good Morning, Effective 4 pm on Monday the 24th of September, I declared that I was willing to accept the responsibility, and officially placed my name forward as a candidate for Student Senator. I am not saying that I am the best candidate for this position but that I am without doubt that I am the second best choice, and luckily you are not voting for the best person but the best TWO people. Moreover, it is for this reason that instead of telling you why I am the best candidate I will tell why I am not the worst candidate. First, I will tell you a little about myself. I am an aspiring politician from Saint John, New Brunswick. This is my first year here at St. Thomas and I am in the Journalism program. Second, you might be asking why is a first-year student…
