As your Mayor, I believe that all sports and recreation groups should have an equal voice – regardless of the size of the organization or whether the group is competitive or recreational. I made a commitment that I would make it my priority to meet with the head of every sport and recreation organization on a regular basis and give every group equal time and opportunity to discuss their needs.
In fulfillment of this commitment, since the start of the New Year, I have already met with the heads of a few of the groups. I have reached out to all organizations, and invited them to meet with me in the Mayor’s office to discuss their organization’s needs.
As I believe we should celebrate the hard work of all our sports and recreation groups, I have also asked each organization to consider coming to General Committee and make a brief presentation that speaks to the achievements of their organizations over the last year, as well as what is in store in the upcoming year.
I look forward to meeting with each organization to discuss how we will work together to get things done in our sporting community…
