Perhaps the most impressive quality of our community, is the power and dedication of our community. It’s because of your partnership, engagement, and commitment that we’ve been able to provide local healthy food options, pass policy that lowers the density of future housing developments, opened a community Public Library in Hamilton, improved public transit service, and begun the SMART Train. Working together to find answers and implement fair, practical, effective solutions that improve daily life, is what I’ve loved most about serving you.
