Campaign Office Opening
Dear friends and neighbours of Ward 23,
Welcome to my campaign website!
It is a privilege for me to serve the residents of Ward 23 - Scarborough North as your City Councillor. We live and work in a great community. Ward 23 is a diverse ward with many new Canadians, like myself, who have made Scarborough and Toronto their home. It is our communities and neighbourhoods which make us strong.
Much have been accomplished in the last four years, new transit like the Scarborough Subway Extension (SSE), support for our seniors like the new proposed dental care clinic for seniors at 240 Alton Towers Circle and a “new” long term care facility at Finch and Brimley; investments in our parks like Audrelane Park and Milliken Park. New daycare spaces at St. Bartholomew and St. Barnabas Catholic schools and real progress on the Steeles Avenue widening.
I want to continue to expand transit and make it affordable. I want to rebuild the community after COVID by supporting small business and creating jobs especially by collaborating with Amazon and Canada Post. I want to care for our seniors and nurture our youth. I want to ensure we live in a safe community.
Thank you for visiting the site. Please do not hesitate to reach out to me. I will continue to work hard to earn your support.
