VAUGHAN’S IDENTITY MUST BE REINVENTED

VAUGHAN’S HOSPITAL

  • I will work with the provincial government to consistently provide updated information on the planning process and implementation of the hospital.

SMART, SENSIBLE AND SUSTAINABLE GROWTH

AN ACCOUNTABLE CITY HALL

CITIZENS’ TASK FORCES

  • I will engage and involve citizens so that together we can shape our community according to our needs.  I will spearhead the organization of these task forces and ensure communication is effective and adequate.
