Dear Markham Residents,
For over 12 years, on Regional Council, I've managed and been involved in many initiatives and that have brought, and will continue to bring, significant benefits and improvements to Markham residents.Complementing our environmental initiative, I successfully got council approval to adopt the Automatic Waste Collection System to be implemented at the Langstaff and Markham Centre development projects.Taking the job creation initiative, I co-hosted the 31st World Hakka Conference, the first time it was ever held in Canada. We successfully put Markham on the World Map, presenting international investment opportunities.Focusing on Public Transit, I supported the Efficient Transit System. We implemented the new transit time efficiency system at York Region Transit bus shelters along the 16th Avenue and Major MacKenzie YRT routes.With each of the above and other items I focused on being fiscally responsible . During my 12 years on council I have spent nothing from the Council Discretionary Budget, saving taxpayers over $100,000.Indeed, I've successfully supported Markham residents for over 12 years and I look forward to continue providing Markham with strong government, sound fiscally responsibility, and new important initiatives over the next term.
