MAY 1, 2018
Since 2010, I’ve had the tremendous honour of representing one of the most populous and diverse wards in our great city. The current Ward 27 has nearly twice the population size of other political wards resulting in voter disparity. To ensure effective representation, the existing ward boundaries were independently reviewed and redrawn. The new ward boundaries will be in place for the October 2018 municipal election.
Ward 27 as we know and love it will no longer exist in the new city government. Our very large ward is being divided amongst five new wards in downtown Toronto. Everywhere I turn in our ward, I see deep friendships, neighbourhoods I cherish, and community projects we championed together. My heart will always be with you. Please read my full letter here.
After much consideration, I am proud to announce I am running in the new Ward 22 in Toronto's upcoming municipal election. Over the next few months, I look forward to meeting new constituents and learning about how I can best represent your concerns and aspirations.
I will be honoured to continue to be a trusted voice on City Council and an effective leader for diverse communities and vibrant neighbourhoods. I will proudly continue to be your city champion on the issues that matter to residents and business owners. With your support, I will continue to advocate for an affordable, beautiful, and creative Toronto.
As always, I welcome hearing from you. Let’s stay in touch!
Yours in service,
