Values Based Leadership

In a rapidly changing world, it is imperative to have a set of values which can serve as a compass for decision making.  These are the core values I will espouse as City Councillor.

Connectivity

The strength of the community lies in the participation of its people.  We will build meaningful pathways to connect and participate to strengthen the fabric of Willowdale. 

Innovation

The challenges we face require innovative approaches.  We will look to global inspiration with localized implementation to find the best solutions for our community.

Collaboration

Build collaborative roundtables across multiple sectors, levels of government and regions to ensure we are building our community together and not in silos.  In these collaborative conversations we will always ask, "Who is missing from this table?" and strive to be inclusive and accessible.

Service

Our office will be service oriented. We will implement a customer service approach including technology that will ensure we are able to close the loop on outstanding requests.  With such a large ward, infrastructure is needed to ensure the best quality of service.

Transparency

Data supported decisions will be made transparently.  Decisions will be made with an accessible consultative process and supporting research.  

Humility

We will always keep a posture of having a listening ear - especially to those who feel least heard and those with differing opinions.  Sometimes hard decisions have to be made, but we will always look for the win-win.
