Ensuring your tax dollars are always used responsibly
Promoting efficient transportation of Gloucester-South Nepean working families to their jobs in the downtown core
Assisting seniors, youth, and community associations
Our ward needs a stronger voice, one that will ensure your tax dollars are spent fairly and efficiently, and the south of Ottawa gets the attention it deserves.
Our geographical location outside of the downtown and government centre requires that the best transportation for us to work must be addressed, not some day in the future but now! The challenge for people to get to work requires decent roads and a state-of-the art public transportation system. The population of our ward is growing very fast and while bicycle paths address our recreation needs and make our city beautiful to live in, they do not address our need to get to the city core, especially in winter!
We need passionate women who want to make a positive change in the capital and I am passionate about Ottawa as so many of you know.Join My team
