Our city is one of the 10 most populated municipalities in Canada and growing quickly. Now more than ever, we must respond to current growth and prepare for the future. How we approach this change is key. As a Regional Councillor, I will advocate to ensure that the region is adapting in a way that is proactive, responsive and flexible to meet our unique community needs.
How I work:
To do this, I will seek out various perspectives and build trusted relationships. I will bring an equity-informed lens to all community discussions, and I will listen and collaborate with residents. There are leaders and organizers doing amazing work here; I will empower and amplify their work. By doing so, we will take meaningful action as a Regional Council while being accountable to all of our neighbours. This process forms a continuous cycle that doesn't end. This work is ongoing.
My Focus Areas:
I have already knocked on hundreds of doors in Kitchener. I've had meaningful conversations with neighbours and community organizers. The same concerns come up again and again. These conversations have informed my focus areas: Housing, Access to Services, Smart Investing, Safer Communities, Environment, Transportation and Reconciliation.
The values-based approach I will take to meeting challenges and preparing for the future will help build a region that works for all.
