It’s that time of year again, where we all wonder how 365 days go by so quickly. It’s a time for appreciating family and friends and celebrating. It’s time to make our lists and check them twice, as the Holidays are upon us. It’s also a time for reflection. This year I was honoured to be elected your MPP and though it’s only been four months in office, I look forward to continuing to represent you in the New Year.
On December 4th, I hosted a Town Hall meeting at the Vellore Village Community Centre in Woodbridge where residents were given an opportunity to address their concerns directly to me, live and in person. The opportunity of meeting with residents and hearing their concerns is of great importance to me. I would like to announce that the next Town Hall meeting will take place right at the Maple Community Centre in Activity Room #1 on January 31st at 7pm. I hope to see you there.
In other news, the Vaughan Mompreneurs and Vaughan Citizen were out spreading holiday cheer. They had a Holiday TweetUp on the 6th. Congratulations go out to Patricia Curto and Kim Champion for a successful evening. That same night I also attended the City of Vaughan Tree lighting and wished all those in attendance a Happy Holidays.
There was plenty of celebration and appreciation all month long as the season bustled by. I attended Menorah lightings at the Lebovic Centre, at Vaughan City Hall and at Queen’s Park with Premier McGuinty and Consul General to Israel, D.J. Shneeweiss. I also had the opportunity to visit holiday parties for a number of our local seniors’ clubs.
I had the chance to wish season’s greetings to the GO transit commuters at both the Maple and Rutherford stations. It’s always great to see all the investments our government has made with transit – a 15 minute service guarantee, more morning and afternoon trains, and building 1,100 additional parking spaces at Maple. I am proud to be part of a government that is taking strong action to make commuting easier and creating a stronger economy.
That just about wraps about this blog and it will be my last entry for 2012. I wish you and your family a wonderful holiday season and a happy, healthy and prosperous New Year. Thanks for reading and see you in 2013!
