Here is Mike's campaign letter. - My name is Michael George and I am a candidate for Council. Thank you to my Aunt Bonnie and Uncle Fred for nominating me for this tremendous responsibility. I would also like to thank my wife Donna for her support. This is not something I take lightly. I last represented our First Nation on Council in the early 1990’s. Since then I have worked for a number of our regional First Nation organizations in a Policy Analysis or Senior Management role. While not always easy or convenient, these opportunities have provided me with the learning experiences I needed to have to adequately serve our people as a member of Council; • In the mid 90’s, I worked with ONWAA as the Training Coordinator when the Ontario Works legislation was brought in by the Harris government, and learned to write business plans in a way that maximized the benefits while minimizing the negative aspects. The London District Chiefs Council became interested in delivering the Ontario Works program ...

This past Thursday marked the last professor lecture in my Policy Analysis class. (still have a couple of weeks of classes, but those will be filled with student presentations) The students clapped at the end of the lecture. We do this….it’s deserved…most of the professors at Evans are freaking amazing lecturers. Their backgrounds are impressive (e.g., this one received his PhD from Yale, taught at Harvard, and worked for the late Senator Ted Kennedy), they are skilled orators, and they have fantastic stories. (on a side note: the only ‘story’ we got about working for Ted Kennedy was that if he asked for a two page memo and it was over two pages…it didn’t get read…..whateves…) But, as I left that class, I thought, “This was a last”. “This is the last time” has become a common precursor for many of the statements Stew and I make to each other these days. “This is the last time we’ll be able to visit with _ before we leave the country.” and “Is this going to be the last ti ...

In the last few years a number of surveys have been conducted by the Institute of Policy Analysis and Research, On The Frontier and recently (2013) by RDB to establish the level of customer service satisfaction. All reports indicate that compared to the level of customer service in the other EAC member states Rwanda ranks below our neighbours. In the last world rankings Rwanda’s performance was similarly below what is expected of us. With the recent introduction of a common tourist visa for Kenya, Uganda and Rwanda it is critical that we scale up our service delivery in order to compete favourably. The government is cognizant of the fact that good customer service gives a competitive advantage in business and plays a key role in attracting foreign investments and has prudently placed customer service high on its development agenda. To radically scale up its efforts to improve cus­tomer service the government has initiated a number of strategies including the launching of the “Na Yombi” campaign to ...

World Churches Council Policy Paper on Social Justice and Common Goods is the best policy to the World Peace and Unity Solutions, which has been published on 22 March 2011 and the same is in accordance with Psalm 85. The Churches cannot succeed if it, isolates itself. Not only m0st Christians reach out to Muslims and other faiths in the spirit of ecumenism, but there is a need to embrace other people of different philosophical convictions. This requires ideological tolerance, maturity and self assurance in what one believes in. Such coalition building is made easier by choosing issues that unite organizations and movements and which have less potential causing divisions. At the same time we need an honest and inventive method of dealing with differences. The global movement for economic justice relies considerably on policy analysis and research conducted by hundreds if not thousands of academics researchers and scholars. Our consequences of the changing power relations in today's world is that there is . ...

I just signed up for the Owen Hill campaign for US Senate to replace Mark Udall as Colorado's next Senator. He was endorsed yesterday by the Tea-Party Express. I urge all of you to support Owen. Here's a short bio on this brilliant young man: Owen Hill moved to Colorado to attend and graduate from the United States Air Force Academy in Colorado Springs with a degree in Economics. He then earned a Ph.D. in Policy Analysis. At church, he met his wife Emily and today they raise and homeschool their four children, Kaiden, Miette, Ellis, and Elinor. As Colorado's next U.S. Senator, Owen will continue his conservative and innovative leadership to solve the national problems that our incumbent U.S. Senator helped to create. - See more at:

News Line! Ghana's GDP growth, which plunged to a record low on quarterly basis between July and September last year, may at best be 4.8 percent for 2013, according to a new forecast by the Centre for Policy Analysis (CEPA). Growth could even be lower, at 4.5 percent, if the fourth quarter data - set to be released in April - do not show a significant improvement over the prior three months, Dr. Joe Abbey, CEPA's Executive Director, told the B&FT. He was speaking after the Ghana Statistical Service (GSS) released bleak 2013 third-quarter growth numbers and the worst possible piece of news on a year in which the economy struggled to contain high inflation, a deep fiscal hole and a terribly weak currency. Economic growth rose by a paltry 0.3 percent year-on-year between July and September - sharply below the 6.1 percent and 6.7 percent growth rates in the second and first quarters' respectively, and the strong 7 percent expansion in the same period of 2012. The sharp slowdown means the economy expanded by j ...

Kudos to CBC Chair and our Congresswoman from Cleveland the Honorable Rep. Marcia Fudge on her great leadership of the CBC. Also, kudos to the great policy research done by the brilliant scholars of the Congressional Black Caucus Foundation Center for Policy Analysis and Research, namely Dr. Marjorie Innocent, Dr, Menna Demessie, and Dr. Ivory Toldson. Wonder what the CBC is doing? Here is your answer. The Black agenda is central to the unfulfilled realization of the American agenda. Let's support the CBC so we can have the critical issues impacting/concerning African Americans, the marginalized, and the poor addressed in the form of progressive, sustainable social and public policies.
Republican Chris Christie Signed Bill To Provide $100 Million For Offshore Wind Projects (6 Dec. 2013) New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie signed the Offshore Wind Economic Development Act in 2010 to provide $100 million in tax credits to develop offshore wind electricity, in addition to existing federal and state subsidies. Moreover, N.J. will require electricity providers to certify that a specified percentage comes from these offshore sources. Offshore wind electricity is estimated to cost 22.15 cents per kilowatt-hour, while onshore wind is 8.66 cents and natural gas combined cycle is only 6.56 cents. Earlier this year, the N.J. Board of Public Utilities denied approval for the proposed Fishermen's Atlantic City Windfarm (FACW) project because of the cost to taxpayers. However, the FACW continues to press for subsidies from the state, as the project is not viable without them.
