Ward 22 Election outcome: statement from the RSCA President

On behalf of the RSCA Executive, we wish to express our appreciation for the support and service Michael Qaqish and his staff provided to the Association.

We also thank all Ward 22 and Mayoral candidates who ran in the recent municipal election as a sign of their dedication, interest, and passion towards the betterment of our, and surrounding communities.

Finally, the entire RSCA Executive congratulates Jim Watson for his 3rd term re-election, and Carol Anne Meehan on becoming the next Ward 22 Councillor for Gloucester-South Nepean!

We look forward to rolling up our sleeves with Carol Anne to establish a new community-based partnership on dealing with and resolving the issues identified in Riverside South.  This includes support and community engagement on municipal projects affecting Riverside South i.e. LRT extension, CDP Updates (including the related plans that will need to be updated), and having the opportunity at the early stages of design to provide input/comment on the proposed recreation complex and library and Hard Rock Casino.

Thanks again to Michael, Harpreet, Zaff and Irene and Mayoral candidates for your various contributions to our community, and congratulations again Jim and Carol Anne!
