Councillor's Message

Dear  neighbours,

Now that the Municipal Election is over, I am able to resume my monthly e-newsletters!

I would like to start by saying   thank  you to the Ward 8 residents for supporting me in the election and it is my pleasure to represent  the residents of Ward 8 in the City of Mississauga for another 4 years.

As we move forward, we still have lots of work to be done in Ward 8 and there are new opportunities that I am looking forward to pursuing.

I will continue to work hard for the residents  of Ward 8 and if there is anything I can assist with, please do not hesitate to contact my office or send me an email.

Wishing you and yours a very Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays!

We value and depend on citizens to become involved in the city. One of the main ways you can do this is to sit on one of the citizen committees. 

It is such an honour for me to serve on many of these with dedicated and engaged citizens. We depend on their feedback and input on many issues.

The Clerk's Office will be accepting applications for appointments to committees of Council beginning on Tuesday,  November 29, 2018 - Friday, January 4th, 2019.
