I had a great day on July 20th promoting change in our city. Thank you to my team of volunteers for helping spread my message of Policy over Politics to residents of Ward 3 Etobicoke Centre. Over the past few weeks we've hit thousands of homes. with the expectation of reaching thousands more before a fundraiser in August.
Municipal politics and the need for change goes beyond one ward. From Etobicoke to Scarborough, North York to downtown, the groundswell of support for many candidates across our city is important. Etobicoke has a new voice in Ward 2; that voice is Andray Domise; a candidate for councillor. Andray had a campaign launch barbecue in the afternoon. I took my team of volunteers to enjoy some great food, interact with other volunteers attempting to make Etobicoke a better community and to meet a candidate I support. Although the rain brought the crowd inside, the sense of hope about Ward 2's future was evident. Jolene Hunt travelled from her booth on Big on Bloor to also show her support.
My last event of the day was to be a dignitary as a candidate for councillor at Youth Day Toronto. A wonderful event in support of our youth and their talents. I had the pleasure of sitting next to Karen Stintz, as well as other mayoral candidates. The crowd was electric for performances by young talent, and peaceful in mourning the loss of too many young persons during a moment of silence. Thank you for the invitation to be the face of Etobicoke Ward 3.
We've had a great month in connecting with residents in July. The push towards October 27th is going to be fantastic in high-lighting the need for a fresh face, a new voice in Ward 3. There are plenty of events planned in the coming month across the city to attend. My team is always looking for support and volunteers. Only with a great team can we truly make a difference.
