Why should the people of Stouffville share your concerns?
It not that the people of Stouffville should share my concerns it is that I share the voice of the residents in Ward 6 and the town as a whole. As a Councillor I am here to serve the residents and help to build a safe and active community life in Whitchurch-Stouffville.
Describe what a successful term with you as Councillor would accomplish?
I believe a successful term as Councillor would be making the lives of the residents in our community one that they feel they can reach out to me anytime and that I will always respond and help them when they feel no one is listening. That I am able to fulfill the issues that they sent me to office to execute. Everything may not be able to be completed in a one 4 year term, but that there has been work done to move the benchmark to see a long term solution come to completion.
