Julia Ringma – College Ward 8

Posted: August 25, 2010 in Ottawa City Council
Tags: , ,

I see that Rick Chiarelli has announced he will be seeking re-election in College ward.

This is too bad as it means that newcomer Julia Ringma has a rougher road ahead of her. Not impossible, but definitely more difficult.

Julia has some great ideas about the growth and expansion of our City and the importance of libraries. As a planner, I do appreciate her insight (Jane Jacobs rocks!) and as a lover of literature, I applaud her stand on libraries.

While some on Council will always vote for unhindered and sprawling development and may not consider our libraries as a core service, Julia would be different.

She is a new face with new ideas. And, like the OCDSB, the Ottawa City Council is also desperately in need of new faces and new ideas.

If you live in College Ward 8, I hope you give her a chance on October 25.
