At a previous YouTube video, Pamela Gough describes how, some years ago, as a parent concerned with the closing of a school in a neighbourhood that she and her husband had just moved into, she decided to run for office as a school trustee at the Etobicoke Board of Education.
She won the election by 20 votes and has not looked back since.
The initial sequence of the interview ended when a phone rang in the background. In the concluding segment, Pamela completes her description of how she launched her career as an elected official.
I have known Pamela Gough since 2011. I am very impressed with her approach to political life. She is articulate, cares deeply about the issues affecting children and everyday residents, and has a track record of achieving solid, tangible results on behalf of the communities she represents.
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.
