First of all I want to thank my family, friends, supporters and volunteers for believing in my vision for Ward 2 and the City of Kitchener. Unfortunately, the citizens of Ward 2 did not share our vision. I wish our new Ward 2 Councillor Elect Dan Schnider good luck and I hope he works hard for the best ward in the best city in the world!
I am very proud of the campaign we ran. We played by the rules and we refused to get drawn into the dirty politics. I was saddened and disappointed by the turn of events and even though we lost I am glad we stayed out of it.
I also want to say that I was truly honoured to have run against Chris Letizi and Grayson Zeilstra. These two young men have class and are both great community leaders and we are blessed to have them in Ward 2.
This marks the end of my political career. I have no regrets and am glad I had the opportunity to run for City Council in Ward 2. Although I will not be seeking office again, I will however remain involved in our community. I will still attend and follow council on a regular basis. I will be there as an active member of our city and I will do what I can to keep Kitchener’s title of the ‘The Best City in the World!’
I congratulate all the dully elected members of Council and I look forward to the great things that you will do during this next term.
With Love & Respect,
