Communication : Ward Priorities

Communication

In order to have an efficient and functioning city, there needs to be a good communication system in place. I understand that within any large organization, information flows many ways, but the key component is that it flows. It is a priority of mine to ensure good constituent-Councillor communication channels.  I’ve been developing a website, and using social media to achieve this.

Prior to being elected, I found the City’s communication system very challenging.  Currently, I am still finding that it is difficult to gather and relay information in a timely manner.  The good news is that communication improvements are underway!  This page will keep you updated on these changes as they are implemented.
