My vision is for a prosperous, vibrant, and welcoming Cobourg. This is a very special place to live. And now it's time to elect the new Council.

Consider this:

"Municipal government is the level of government that is closest to the people. As a result, municipal government can help promote grassroots change."

Federation of Canadian Municipalities

And that is why I am a candidate to be elected to Cobourg Council!

  • Women take a different approach to the process and to policy content. This often results in more inclusive discussions around the council table.

  • The presence of women also helps to ensure political behaviour that is more constructive and less adversarial 

These words resonate with me: grassroots change, inclusiveness, constructive, less adversarial.

I know we can make decisions this way because I've done it!
