I was inspired to seek public office because I believe, like so many of you, “I can do something about that” on the issues we face. As councilor, my role is to take a stand on what’s best for residents and go to bat for it. Pushback is inevitable from those who don’t have the community’s interests at heart. I will stand with you and for you, to achieve the best interests of our city, without caving to unacceptable compromise in the name of consensus.

  1. I am trying to sign on to receive Burlington stories into my inbox. However, it says my email address is already in the system. If so, how come I am not receiving any emails. My friend forwarded the one on the compost giveaway to me. Renate McLaughlin 905-336-7859
