Happy To Be Re-elected

I feel very privileged to have been re-elected as the Councillor in ward 5. I want to thank all those who supported me in various ways during the campaign. I appreciate very much the voters who expressed their confidence in me by marking their ballot in favour of me.

I welcome the two new elected councillors and am ready to help them as they onboard to the Councillor role.
