Terry Shortt is seeking re-election in Sophiasburgh, Ward 10, Prince Edward County. He has served on County council for the past 14 years.
An electrician by trade, he has been the owner of Terry Shortt Electrical Services for the past 27 years. He is a graduate of the Loyalist College electrician trade school. Shortt is the former recreation committee chairman for Sophiasburgh.
Shortt says infrastructure is a serious issue in Prince Edward County. He says many roads are in need of repair and there is not enough tax revenue to maintain them. He says the influx of tourists in the summer are an important part of the county’s economy, but tourists also contribute to the degradation of the road system but provide very little in terms of taxable revenues to repair the roads. He says council needs to work with the province to find new ways to generate revenues to maintain County roads.
Shortt is a musician and plays in a band named “Long Reach”. He is a motorcycle enthusiast. When he has time he enjoys cruising on his motorcycle with his wife. Shortt and his wife recently celebrated their 38th anniversary.
