For the last 10 years, I have been looking for a way to be involved in truly meaningful change for the community I was raised in, and in which I raised my own family. I grew up on Pennington Crescent, and raised my daughter until I found my own place in Georgetown South.
A few years ago, as I saw more homes being built, I reached out to the town and asked to get involved in the Town of Halton Hills Sustainability Strategy, where I was able to network with community leaders at various events and participated in a transportation task force study to gain deeper insights as to community needs. Since then I have followed the growth and development of issues in Halton Hills, and met with existing councillors for informal information sessions.
It was on the backs of these experiences that I decided that town council is the place where I can have the most positive impact for my home town.
My overriding ideology can be summarized as "service above self". I am committed to bringing honesty, integrity and an open mind to the council table, and believe that we can accomplish a lot for our community when we collaborate and work as a team. As a Rotarian, and active member of the Rotary Club of Georgetown, I am actively assessing issues, and areas of opportunity to take action and contribute to sustainable change. My 17 years of experience as a Senior Project Manager has also prepared me for this role.
Having lived in Ward 4 since I was 9 years old, and now having 3 daughters, I am particularly interested in issues that affect our youth and young working families. I am an advocate for the youth of this town and am presently engaged with community leaders to learn more about youth at risk and areas of mentorship and support. Our youth have a voice that deserves to be heard. I am also ready to work hard to maintain the small-town feel of Georgetown by keeping Ward 4 connected as we enter the 2021 Vision Georgetown expansion.
I am now looking forward to campaigning and filling out my platform with the concerns of the real people living in Ward 4. I have already spoken to a number of you on both sides of the isle, and it has been great to hear so many perspectives. You can always count on the fact I am willing to listen and collect the issues and ideas that represent Ward 4 as a community.
Thanks to all those who supported me by signing my nomination papers. Your support is very much appreciated!
