I heartily endorse Ron Weese as a candidate for Council in Ward 1 Aurora. I have known Ron since 2015 – from my previous role in community media to my later work with Sport Aurora and Activate Aurora – and have always seen him as a community-builder with a broad interest in making Aurora a better place to live, work, and play.
Ron has worked with several local non-profits and charities and has helped found key organizations such as Sport Aurora and the Aurora Sports Hall of Fame. He helped create programs like All Kids Can Play and Activate Aurora, and through his extensive grant writing ability, has been able to secure more than $1.3 million in provincial and local grants.
As a 38-year resident, Ron has deep roots in the community, and with his academic background as a professor at Seneca College, I believe he will bring a collaborative, thoughtful approach to local government.
For these reasons and more, I fully support Ron’s candidacy in the upcoming municipal election.
