I WAS FIRST ELECTED TO Regional Council in Niagara Falls in 2006 and served 2 terms (8 years).
I work for the CONSTITUENTS that elect me, always return phone calls and responding within 24 hours to any concerns they may have. My experience working for the Federal and Provincial Government has given me invaluable experience in dealing with issues that concern the people in the Niagara Region.
I was not elected in 2014 and over the past 4 years I have seen nothing but issues that have plagued the Niagara Region with no resolve. The wheel keeps on spinning.
Elect Barbara Greenwood and see some honesty, integrity, and transparency return to the Region of Niagara.
