DONNA BRANIFF – Ward 19 Beaches-East York candidate for Councillor
As a resident of the Beaches East York community for over 35 years, I have strong feelings and thoughts about this wonderful community and what we can do to make it even better.
Since day one, my love for the community has only been growing. With a Councillor like myself who feels passionate about the changes we need here, this community could become something that people can look up to.
My platforms include a wide variety of topics such as better protection, better waste disposal system, converting waste into renewable energy, better assistance programs for seniors, a more streamlined system for youth employment, better commute system by understanding the specific requirements for each route, a direct platform to communicate with me where all the issues will be addressed within 24 hours, a professional development platform, cleaner roads, more events celebrating diversity in this community, and regular research and analysis to understand needs.
I believe that the requirements keep changing over time. It is important to hear out the people who live in this ward and act accordingly.
My action plan in simple terms, is to LISTEN-ACTION-COMMUNICATE. The people who live in this ward should be the decision makers on what they see fit for the ward. When we work together, all the changes that I would like to see in this ward, are definitely possible.
As a member of this community, I would like to welcome everyone to join hands with me and tell me what you would like to see changed; For I am here for you. To work for you, to work with you and make this a model ward for the rest of the world to be in awe about.
