Dear Friends & Neighbours,

Thanks to your support and encouragement, I have had the privilege of representing the St. Paul’s West community for more than 20 years. Together, we have nurtured the growth of our neighbourhood into the thriving and desirable community it is today. I am pleased to share my wish to continue that momentum as I announce my candidacy for councillor of Ward 15 in the October 22 municipal election.

As you likely know, the City’s ward boundaries have changed, including the addition of three new wards. Ward 21 will no longer exist in its current form; instead, the new Ward 15 will cover most of our area. View the new ward map here. Many residents will not notice the change except the name. I am sad to lose residents to the north of Eglinton; we’ve been on many journeys together. Thank you for your commitment to community-building and your past support. Looking ahead, I’m excited to work with new residents to the east and west, and to forging new friendships, partnerships, and visions for our community.

I care deeply about our corner of Toronto. Over my years of service to this community, together we have planted and nourished many little acorns of ideas that have germinated into pillars of our community. Each of these projects has contributed to making our city – and especially our community – what it is today: a vibrant, diverse, inclusive, and exciting place to live. I am so grateful that I continue to have your confidence as I carry out this work.

And there is more on the way! Click here to read the full version of my letter.

With ongoing local projects, upcoming critical decisions to be made about Toronto’s future, and our ward’s expansion into some exciting new neighbourhoods, there couldn’t be a better time to be city-building! It has always been a great honour to serve this community, my community. I love that I get to help it grow, and that I get to do it alongside you. This October, let’s commit to four more years of building healthy, thriving communities together.
