On the Campaign Trail with Sarah Doucette: Candidate for Toronto City Council, Ward 13

 

By: Sarah Doucette | Candidate for Toronto City Council, Ward 13

My name is Sarah Doucette; I am running for Toronto City Council in Ward 13. I have lived in the Ward with my husband and children for fifteen years. During this time I have saved school swimming pools, built playgrounds, and kept Swansea Memorial Library from closing. I have organized community clean up days and e-waste free recycling days.

I am a founding member of Green 13, a local environmental group, and am working with others to prevent more Diesel trains from bringing toxins into our neighbourhood.

I have been a member of 11 Division Community Police Liaison Committee for over seven years. I am a member of the Aquatics Working Group chaired by former mayor David Crombie, I have been involved with the Toronto District School Board Ward 7 council chaired by Trustee Atkinson and been on school councils at Swansea PS and Humberside CI for a total of fifteen years. Being involved with the local schools I know we need more daycare in our ward.

I believe a councillor needs to listen to the people. I have invited the Business Improvement Associations, Resident Groups and Tenant Associations to join a Ward Council, which will meet quarterly. As Councillor I will hold monthly public meetings so residents can bring their concerns and issues to discuss with me. I will continue to distribute my newsletter on local issues, which people tell me they find informative.

While working at Swansea Town Hall for the past six years, I have established the principals I will bring to city hall.

I LISTEN…I RESPOND… I TAKE ACTION!

For more information on my campaign and how to get involved please visit my website at www.sarahdoucette.com I am looking for people to come canvassing, take a lawn sign or make phone calls.  But most of all I am looking for your support on October 25.

Sarah

    I read your electoral platform and I was quite impressed by your promise of a citizens’ committee with whom you will meet on a regular basis.

    I think that it is very important to meet with your constituents so that as an elected official you will have a better understanding of their needs.

    Best to you in your campaign

    Anne-Marie G.
