I have had the privilege of knowing Ron Weese and his family for over 20 years. Ron is passionate about Physical Literacy and Sport and was the co-founder of Sport Aurora. For 10 years I volunteered with Sport Aurora and during most of that time, Ron was its President. Ron was instrumental in spear-heading initiatives such as the All Kids Can Play Program, Physical Literacy, Women in Sport (now known as Women Leading Girls), Breakfast of Champions, Volunteer Recognition event, and Aurora’s Sports Hall of Fame. Without Ron’s leadership and guidance, none of this would have been possible. Ron is a community-builder.
Ron is a strong advocate of maintaining good health through physical activity. Through Ron’s passion and vision, he was responsible for initiating and leading Activate Aurora. Activate Aurora’s mandate was increasing its young and old residents’ awareness of the importance of staying active to maintain a healthy community.
Ron and Eileen raised their family in Aurora and they are proud to be members of this community. Ron loves this Town and strives to make Aurora a wonderful place to live, work, and raise a family. Ron has always led by example and through his dedication and passion has been an inspiration to many people in our community and to me.
I am hopeful that Ron will be elected as Town Councillor of Ward 1. Ron has the experience, passion, and dedication required to represent the citizens of Aurora and help lead this great Town into the future.
