I’m very excited by the possibility of serving again as your candidate in Toronto Centre. I’m proud of what we accomplished in the last election, and I’m encouraged by the knowledge that we can doÂ even better in the next.
In the next election we will no longer be debating whether or not there is a need for action. We’ve won that battle. Now, we must convince voters that our solutions are the best for Toronto Centre, the country, and the planet. In fact, I believe that the Green Party is currently the only party that can succeed in solving the various environmental crisis we face, because we are the only party that’s willing to look at them holistically.
In the next election we will need a fulltime candidate, a fulltime campaign manager, an office, and a dedicated team of volunteers. Not only will I campaign fulltime on your behalf, over the past several months I have been assembling a fantastic team, including database managers, web administrators, communications experts, and a fulltime campaign manager, Becky Smit, who in the last election achieved the highest result in all of Toronto.
I’ve also enjoyed building strong relationships with community leaders all over our riding. Several of those leaders who organized local debates in the last election are now supporting my candidacy in one way or another.
If you have any questions between now and the nomination meeting, please contact me. I have limited access to email this week, but am looking forward to hearing from you and will get back to you as soon as I can.
By the way, you’re more than welcome at the nomination meeting whether you’re a member or not. Even if you just want to find out more about the party, this is a great opportunity to do so. The meeting is on Wednesday January 24th, 7pm, at 110 Lombard St. See you there!
