Hello Ward 3 constituents,
Pickering is home to my wife Ishrat and I and our three children, two of which have started their own families right here in Pickering. We are excited to see them raising their children here just like we did and for good reason. The City has seen tremendous growth economically and in population with many amenities and services for seniors and young families alike. It is a City with so much to be proud of and it is on its way to being one of the best Cities to live and work in.
Ward 3, in the City of Pickering, is unique in its geographical location as it encompasses the most beautiful hamlets in the region from Cherrywood in the west to Claremont in the north and Kinsale to the east. It also covers the beautiful New Seaton subdivision off Taunton Road and the area in and around the City Centre. It is great to see the diversity that the City has attracted, and I look forward to meeting the many new residents that have come to live here.
It has been an honour and pleasure to have represented the residents of Ward 3, the largest of the three wards in the City of Pickering for the past 2 terms and to be part of its growth and prosperity. I have always focused on being available for the residents at all times of the day and having an open-door communication policy whether it be virtually, by phone, or in-person, when possible, and to respond in a timely manner. As your City Councilor, it is important to do what is right for the residents of Ward 3 and for the City. Preserving our natural heritage is just as important as urban growth. This is the balance I have worked hard for and look forward to continuing to do the work and representing you as your City councillor in the next term.
City Councillor, WARD 3
