I strongly support Pamela Gough’s campaign for election as the Councillor for Ward 3 at the City of Toronto.
In her role as school trustee at the Toronto District School Board, Pamela Gough played a key role, along with the then-MPP for Etobicoke-Lakeshore, Laurel Broten, in a successful effort by residents in Long Branch (south Etobicoke) to keep Parkview School in public hands.
The school is now renamed École élémentaire Micheline-Saint-Cyr as I’ve outlined in a recent post entitled:
I met with Pamela Gough on Sept. 26, 2018 as part of a campaign meeting and made a series of videos in which she outlines how she got started in political life, in the first place. She also outlined for me all of the details related to her campaign platform.

I encourage you to help out with the campaign, through donations, and/or canvassing or other volunteer efforts. I am helping out myself, while living outside of Toronto, by helping with the social media side of her campaign.
