For nearly two decades, I have devoted both my personal and professional life to children and youth, public education, and our community. These are my key priorities not just at election time, but all the time.
In our ward, I've worked with parents and the community to create three new French Immersion sites, prevented local schools from closing and saved local pools. I work daily to help parents navigate the system and transform our schools into community hubs. I've stayed focused, optimistic and energetic during a particularly challenging time at the Toronto District School Board. I've served as vice-chair of the TDSB, chaired the Human Resources Committee, and worked on the Mental Health Leadership Team to enact a new strategy for children and youth at the TDSB.
I am running for re-election because there is still much to be done. I know that with your support, we can get even more accomplished!
"I have had the pleasure of working with Cathy Dandy for the past few years on a number of issues of importance to her constituents in Ward 15. Whether rallying to save pools in schools or keeping schools open, inclusive and accessible as community centres, Cathy has provided extraordinary leadership and dedication. As we move forward we are going to be in need of her energy, experience, imagination and integrity again. That is why I'm urging you to vote for her as Trustee in Ward 15."
David Crombie, former Mayor of Toronto
