After much thought and consideration over the past year, I have decided to seek re-election to the Ontario Legislature in the upcoming provincial election, which is expected in June of 2018.
I have been very fortunate over the years to have the support of so many good people, who are involved in politics for one reason: to help build a better Ontario. It is their commitment to their communities which inspires me to want to continue my work at Queen’s Park.
Together, we have worked very hard to gain approvals for the new Groves Hospital, the Morriston bypass, the Town of Halton Hills long-term transportation study, the Laurier Milton campus, a new Halton Courthouse, and other important infrastructure projects. While we have made significant progress, the job is not yet done.
Effective leadership requires vision, honesty and a workable plan that that is ambitious, but achievable. The people of Ontario deserve nothing less.
In spite of our current challenges, we can and will do better. The promise of the future for our Province is before us.
With Christmas just around the corner, I want to express my sincere thanks to our many churches, service clubs, food banks, community organizations, and individuals who are reaching out to help those in need.
Our communities in Wellington-Halton Hills are caring and generous. We are truly blessed, and so many are sharing their time and good fortune to ensure that everyone enjoys the Holiday Season.
This is the time of year that Christians celebrate the birth of Christ. His teaching and example call us to be compassionate and care for one another, not just at Christmas time, but all year round.
Peace, joy, and love surround us.
From our family to yours, Merry Christmas, and all the best in 2017.
