About the Blog

Welcome to my Blog

This is a forum for open dialogue and communication with the people of Burlington.

I look forward to engaging with you through this blog and other forums to generate discussion on issues, to share information, and to open a positive, constructive dialogue about the City of Burlington.

A few things about my blog:

If you have input that you would like to be part of official City or Burlington records, or to be addressed to Burlington City Council, please email me at mayor@burlington.ca
  • I am committed to posting regular, timely content for discussion but if you have an immediate concern or emergency, please call the proper authorities or City Hall at 905-335-7600 or Information Halton at 311

November 2014 Progress Report

First of all, I want to take this opportunity to thank the people of Burlington for “extending my contract” for another 4 years. Each and every day, it is an honour and privilege to serve as mayor. I do not take this job lightly and I continue to work hard at improving my performance. I am very pleased to re-connect with you and provide this post-election update. I look forward to continuing to send out regular progress reports for the next term as one way of updating you on what Council and staff are working on at the City. I want to continue the dialogue with Burlington residents and encourage you to reach out to me and the Mayor’s office on any issues that may arise. You can reach me via email at mayor@burlington.ca, phone at 905-335-7607, or through my social media channels. Continue reading
