"The natural beauty of Saugeen Shores draws new residents and tourists alike. We can have growth, but we must nurture, protect, and expand the parks, trails, and natural spaces that draw us all here." -Bud
I’m Bud Halpin, and I’m seeking a seat for the Port Elgin Ward on Saugeen Shores Council in the October election.
During my 22 year teaching career in Saugeen Shores, I had many opportunities to work with the Town and several community groups. Under my leadership the students worked on our beaches, parks, and community spaces. I am seeking a seat on council, so that I can continue to serve the citizens and community of Saugeen Shores.
I believe that I have excellent experience to serve as a member of Saugeen Shores Council.
I had one term as Councillor in Chesley where my portfolio included Public Works. Among my proudest achievements was being the lead councillor in
establishing the Chesley Rail Trail System. I also had one
term as Chesley’s representative of the Arran Elderslie PUC.

Before I was a teacher, I ran my own small contracting
business for over 10 years. For 10 years I also owned and
operated two cottage parks in Port Elgin. This gives me
unique insight into the tourist industry and small
business, which are important components of the
Saugeen Shores economy.
My working career demonstrates an ability to be
co-operative, to be innovative, and to be dedicated in
serving the community.
