Since the middle of September, I have been hosting Mid-Term Town Halls throughout Rideau-Goulbourn. Originally, we scheduled ten meetings in Kars, Richmond, Burritt’s Rapids, Manotick, Fallowfield Village, Ashton, North Gower, Beckett’s Landing, Munster & Country Club Village. After all of these were announced, we added an eleventh meeting at the Goulbourn Town Hall. This Town Hall will take place on Wednesday, November 28th, from 7:00 to 9:00pm, to focus on the areas surrounding Stittsville that fall in Rideau-Goulbourn. Having already hosted ten Town Hall meetings, these have been a great opportunity to get out and speak with the communities I have the privilege to represent. Thank you to everyone who has attended the meetings held so far and I look forward to seeing more residents on the 28th.Read More
