My name is Jeff Harris and I am excited to be the PPC candidate for the Simcoe-Grey riding! Happily married, and the father of two children, I’m concerned that professional politicians are ignoring the concerns of regular people.
I’m probably best known for the consumer advocacy site that I created in the 1990’s - TheSqueakyWheel.com. The site is still running, 20 years later. It has been featured on the Discovery Channel, written about in magazines and newspapers, and has been the focus of study in business schools across the world. I’m pleased to say that using the power of the Internet, TheSqueakyWheel.com has been able to help people in Canada, Australia and the USA get their consumer complaints resolved.
What a lot of people don’t know about me is that I also helped to start and run a successful multi-million-dollar document management software company based out of Toronto. For 20+ years we’ve been helping both public sector and for-profit companies streamline their business processes, reduce their costs and eliminate their dependence on paper.
Based on my experience in both technology and business, I know that if given the chance, I can help make the Canadian government more efficient and more responsive to the needs of regular people – people like you and me.
