As I have done for the past four years, I intend to continue to ensure you are engaged and kept informed about the issues that matter to you with my regular email updates.
But today, on behalf of my family, my staff and certainly myself, I want to simply say thank you. I really love our community.
I am deeply appreciative of the remarkable support Ward 22 residents showed me yesterday and I am deeply grateful.
With the largest plurality across the city, we truly came together as a community. I am committed to working hard every day to demonstrate that your confidence in me was well founded and my team and I will always be there for you if you need my assistance.
I also very much want to congratulate Mayor-elect John Tory on his well-earned victory. Our community strongly rejected the antics of disrepute and the dishonest politics of division. We chose a more thoughtful, honest, responsible and collaborative direction. We even lead the city with the highest number of votes in the advance polls! I believe we have begun a new era in Toronto.
I am now very excited to get to work with our next mayor and council to focus on our city’s priorities, as I continue to advocate for the many important issues that matter most to Ward 22’s residents and champion the well-being of our neighbourhoods and residents.
Truly honoured to be your city councillor,
