Your candidate for Ward 7-Uptown
It's an exciting time in our city's life. Urban intensification is changing how we live, work, and play. That gives us the opportunity to lay the foundation for a vibrant, healthy and inclusive future.
As your Councillor for Ward 7-Uptown, I will advocate for:
Healthy growth through infill development that provides variety in housing without overwhelming neighbourhoods, and brings residents into the planning process
Healthy economy by listening to Uptown businesses and working with the City's economic development team, and keeping a close eye on the municipal budget
Healthy spaces by supporting parks and trails, bike lanes and transit, accessibility and affordability, and encouraging a collaborative approach to sustainable living
I am an award-winning journalist and science writer, a mom, and passionate community-builder.
After moving to Waterloo in 2010, I founded the WR Arts Award-winning Grand Porch Party, sat on environmental and community boards, regularly appeared on CBC Kitchener-Waterloo as their parenting columnist, and actively contributed to making my adopted city as vibrant and inclusive as possible.
