Incumbent mayoral candidate Al McDonald says investing in infrastructure is planning for growth.

In his latest campaign plank he says he’s “doubling down on infrastructure.”

McDonald goes on to say if the city doesn’t maintain the pace of infrastructure renewal and investment, it won’t be ready for development opportunities.

He says when business and industry look to expand, relocate or engage in new startup operations, a key ingredient in the mix is whether a community has the necessary services in place.

“North Bay has continually invested in infrastructure to the tune of more than $120 million dollars in the last four years alone,” he says.

McDonald equates these investments to property owners upgrading electrical and plumbing in their homes, adding new windows or a new roof.
