I enthusiastically endorse Chris to be our City Councillor because I know he'll be an inclusive and effective advocate for us, and for our community. In the decade I've known him, he's proven time and time again that he has the right leadership, skills, and experience to be a powerful voice and deliver results.
I know firsthand that our Ward 25 neighbourhoods and communities will benefit from having Chris Moise as our partner, advocate, and champion. Only Chris has a proven record of working together with all constituents, stakeholders, representatives, and levels of government to deliver results with integrity that reaches beyond affiliation or creed.
For almost 21 years the community had tried to undertake the revitalization of Jesse Ketchum Parkette --- a small but vital City-maintained park on TDSB-owned land. Despite funding being in place, the 2 entities could not agree on a renewed operating agreement. With the election of Chris as Trustee, a new spirit of cooperation ensued and the project is now slated for completion in late 2018. His leadership was instrumental and it is gratifying to hear that his priorities include greater respect for our public realm as our city intensifies --- including pedestrian and bicycle accommodation and safety.
Chris Moise will make a formidable local councillor. He lives in the ward, he represents it as our public school trustee, and he has the local and community roots it takes to succeed. With Chris as our City Councillor, we can keep our ward progressing forward.
As a parent, small business owner, and community activist, I’ve watched Chris prove his leadership as our public school board Trustee by tirelessly advocating and championing equity and real solutions that work. I know that as the Councillor for our new Ward 25, Chris will ensure that our neighbourhoods stay safe, secure, and welcoming to all.
