Re-Elect Chris Fonseca for Mississauga City Councillor - Ward 3
“ I am very happy to support and have complete confidence in Chris Fonseca! There is no question that she will be re-elected as Councillor in Ward 3. She was Councillor when I was Mayor and did an outstanding job! She listens to the community, she does her homework and works with staff and all of Council and her work ethic is second to none! Thank you Chris for serving the residents of Ward 3 and the City of Mississauga with such dedication! ”
- Former Mayor Hazel McCallion
It has been an honour and privilege to serve as your Ward 3 City Councillor for the past eight years!
The greatest days I have had as your councillor have been meeting you at your homes, places of work, or in my office when you come to visit me to resolve many issues that you may have. I made a commitment to the community when I first ran in 2010, to work as hard as I possibly could and do all I could for the residents of Ward 3.
I am very proud that I have stayed focused on the commitments I made to you when you elected me in 2010 and re-elected me in 2014. I have kept you INFORMED about what is going on in our community and wonderful City of Mississauga through individual and community meetings, newsletters, e-updates, and community events. I take great pride in knowing that I get back to everybody that calls my office or emails me as quickly as possible to answer your questions, understand what the problem is that you are facing, and do all I can to fix it.
I have been focused on COMMUNITY BUILDING - PROTECTING & ENHANCING OUR NEIGHBOURHOODS. As I go door-to-door through Ward 3, you tell me that your priorities are a safe community, a green and clean community, and a place where seniors, youth and everybody in between is able to enjoy all that we have to offer and to succeed at whatever they are doing.
I have prioritized making sure our INFRASTRUCTURE is keeping pace with our needs. You probably see a lot of construction going on in our community, road and water main work, noise reduction walls, flood mitigation of the creeks and trails, parks being re-developed with equipment and benches, over 2,000 trees being planted in the past four years, and brighter, more efficient LED lights being put into our neighbourhoods and community centres.
I have also stayed committed to getting the best possible RETURN ON INVESTMENT FOR EVERY TAX DOLLAR. My voting record has been based on what my parents always taught me: That every dollar that is being spent should be spent wisely and you should know what the return on that dollar will be for the community. I have advocated for a fair share of funding for Ward 3, for the City of Mississauga, and predictable funding from the Federal and Provincial government for infrastructure, housing, and social service supports for youth, seniors and families. I have voted in favour of finding savings in all areas of each budget cycle, with a focus on efficient, asset management planning and a LEAN budgeting process that looks for ways to save money so that we can use the tax dollars that we do have to focus on the priorities of the citizens of Ward 3.
With your help and your support, I would like to continue to help build our community, continue to make it a vibrant place to live, work and raise our families.
I would like to invite you to please feel free to drop by my campaign office at 980 Burnhamthorpe Road, Mississauga, ON L4Y 2X6. Or you can call me at 647-313-4541. Again, it has been an honour serving you, I am asking for your support to vote Chris Fonseca on ELECTION DAY, Monday October 22nd, 2018.
