Thank you for your Vote of Confidence

Thank you Ward 5 for your support and for re-electing me to serve as your Councillor for the next term.  It has been an honour to be your representative and I am very pleased to continue doing so.  The campaign period has been very valuable for me as it set the stage for me to hear directly from you.  I have documented concerns and ideas and will now be assessing how I can address them. As I have expressed throughout the campaign there are very positive developments happening in King and I want to work to ensure we maintain the momentum.  There are also critical issues which need to be addressed and I will work to achieve improvements.  We have all chosen to live in a great place; I will continue to do my best to make it better.

Why Re-elect Debbie Schaefer?

Learning About All the Candidates

Two excellent All Candidates Meeting were hosted by Concerned Citizens of King Township on October 10 and 11.  Former was for candidates in Wards 1 and 5; other one was for the other wards.  As a candidate I am very appreciative of the effort CCKT has made to facilitate citizens learning about the candidates.  In addition to hosting the events CCKT made videos of both meetings which can be viewed on  And in addition on their website an extensive questionnaire answered by the candidates is available for viewing.

Fire Prevention

Fire prevention is the most valuable work of our Fire Departement.   Wednesday, October 10 3:30-7:30 come to the King City Fire Station to learn how each of us, each family can prevent fires.   Families who attended the event last year in Schomberg report that it was extremely worthwhile for the whole family.  And, when they went home they developed a plan for all the family to escape a fire.
