Why am I running for re-election?

I am very thankful to you, my constituents for supporting me to serve you for the past term of council. We accomplished many great initiatives in the City of Burlington but have much more work to do. Ward 1 is one of the busiest wards in the city with many great features such as:

✓ Joseph Brant Hospital

✓ Burlingtons beach strip community

✓ Tyandaga Golf course - our only city owned course

✓ Royal Botanical Gardens

✓ Aldershot Go MTSA

✓ City View park - Burlington’s largest park

✓ La Salle Park Community Marina

✓ Mapleview Mall
