Yes. Absolutely. I was elected on the promise of being a collaborative leader and responsive to my community concerns, and I am proud that I kept that promise. I feel that there should have been greater respect to all members of different community groups and their differing opinions throughout this past term of council.
Yes. This is actually the number one reason I decided to run for city councillor. I have been fortunate in my career to work with so many different people of so many different backgrounds. Ward-19's is growing more and more everyday and we need to foster that growth and ensure everyone feels heard, seen and included. This is why I held the first ever Orléans Multicultural Festival this summer right here in Orléans South Navan. At the end of the day, we all have the same goal: to make Ottawa better and greener for everyone. I would be honoured to bring many more diverse voices to the table to discuss Ottawa's climate change strategy.
