My name is Debbie Sherwood and I am seeking re-election as Councillor for the Town of Orangeville. I have been a resident of Orangeville for over 40 years and have raised my children and grandchildren here. During this time we have been very active within the community attending festivals, sporting events, school activities and enjoyed all the entities Orangeville has to offer.
I am a retired Tax Collector/Deputy Treasurer having worked in Municipal Government in a Financial Role for over 35 years. My finance experience has proven to be an asset during this term of Council. I currently am a part-time Faculty member for Seneca College.
Some of my accomplishments have been being Chair of Heritage Orangeville, Council appointed member of the BIA, Co-Chair of the Men’s Homelessness Committee and Council member from 2018-2022. I also volunteer at the Orangeville Food Bank, the Orangeville Blues and Jazz Festival and the Children’s Foundation’s Food and Friends program for the schools.
My passion is for my community and some of the reasons I ran last election is the same reason I am seeking re-election. I want to hold the line on tax increases; ensure we have affordable recreation services for youth and seniors; protect our environment, heritage and culture and promote Orangeville as a desirable place to live, visit, shop, work and play.
During this last term as a member of Council, together we have achieved so much. Despite the unexpected challenges we faced, our Council pressed on with a bold and exciting agenda.
I want to continue the important work that we have started together, and I want to make sure that we stay on track to realizing our full potential as a community. Now is not the time to lose the ground that we have worked so hard to gain or put at risk the important progress that we have made together.
To ensure the residents of Orangeville have experienced representation that looks out for their interests, is spending your hard earned dollars wisely, ensuring services are maintained, debt is controlled and we build our reserves, I will always act in your best interest.
It has been my honour to serve the community this last term of Council and though we accomplished many great achievements there is more to do and that is why I am asking for your consideration to re-elect me. I would be privileged to serve another term on Orangeville Town Council.
On October 24 please re-elect Debbie Sherwood for Orangeville Town Councillor.
