Linda’s late mother, Lorna Jackson, was Vaughan’s longest-serving Mayor and held office from 1982 until her death in April 2002. Lorna’s political career played a significant role in influencing Linda’s career in politics. To this day, she credits her mother with teaching her the importance of public service and how to positively effect change in the community with strong leadership.
We need to ensure responsible community planning that allows our City to grow while respecting the integrity of existing communities and continue to offer a diverse range of housing options for all residents.
It is vital that we maximize the effectiveness of existing roadways, expand and connect current and new corridors in order to benefit all motorists, cyclists, transit users and pedestrians.
Vaughan needs to continue to attract new businesses in all sectors to maintain a strong industrial/commercial tax base that reduces the burden to our residents while continuing to offer unparalleled services.
Election Day is fast approaching, tell your family and friends:
