Throughout the years, I have had the pleasure of leading, fostering and connecting a very generous and caring community. To date, we have been able to greatly assist local individuals and groups such as The Big Brothers Big Sisters of Guelph, United Way Guelph Wellington Dufferin, A Little Relief and many more!
Our Caught in Guelph Turkey Drive have been able to bring thousands of pounds of fresh drug-free turkey to hundreds of local families during the holiday seasons. I’m proud to have been able to, and continue to assist countless families and individuals in their time of needs through the collective kindness of our community members. This year we were able to assist 80 families with over 1,200 lbs of turkey, sides, fixings, dessert and more!
I am also pledging the equivalent of $6,034.00 of my received council pay – the amount of the pay raise that council voted to give council coming out of the pandemic – to be donated to local non-profit marginalized groups. I have always felt that this pay raise doesn’t resonate with the people who are struggling today.
I will also bring forth new Code of Conduct policies for all recipients of taxpayer-funded resources, as well as committee members (and their team), to further protect marginalized groups in our community.
