Experience… Integrity… Commitment
John’s integrity, commitment, experience and proven track record for finding solutions and getting the job done are hallmarks of his political career that make him the right choice to be our Regional Councillor for Wards 9 and 10.
Hello fellow residents of Wards 9 & 10, also known as Springdale, Castlemore and Gore.
My name is John Sprovieri and I have been representing the residents of these two wards for the past 26 years. I am running for re-election on October 27, 2014 and am asking for your support to continue representing you for the next four years.
Over the past 26 years these two wards have grown from 8,000 to 150,000 residents and I have had the opportunity to meet many of you over the years to resolve your City and Regional related issues and concerns. I am pleased to say that I have developed a reputation of being responsive, effective and getting results for the residents of Wards 9 & 10.
The past term has been a very productive time for Wards 9 & 10. We have seen the opening of the state-of-the-art Gore Meadows Community Centre and Library on Gore Road, numerous road reconstruction projects, transit service improvements, such as the introduction of the Zum transit service on Queen Street and the start of the Zum transit service on Bovaird Dr. In September 2014, the approval of the long awaited and greatly needed library for the Springdale community, and the approval of the second phase of the Gore Meadows Community Centre which will include the finest swimming pool in Brampton, an excellent fitness centre and artificial skating rink, has materialized.
Another major achievement of this term has been the approval of the Area 47 Secondary Plan in Ward 10. The area is located between Gore Road and Highway 50, north of Castlemore Road. While this new development area has a residential component, it also has approximately 1,500 acres of employment lands that will bring jobs to east Brampton.
Although much has been achieved in this term, the past year has been a turbulent time at city hall. Due to the mayor’s secret and abusive spending habits of tax payers dollars, Brampton has received a great deal of negative attention across the country. As many of you are aware, I have been very outspoken about the abuse of tax payers money and have been a major supporter for the forensic audit and police investigation. My primary focus for the past year has been to aid in the process to expose the abuse and bring back accountability to the office of the mayor and to a smaller degree, to the office of the council.
In addition to the recent spending scandal, court documents from the City Hall expansion lawsuit are revealing that there may have been some improper activity in the approval process of the project. The truth on this issue needs to be exposed and those involved should be held accountable.
I would like to assure the residents of Wards 9 & 10 that if re-elected on October 27, 2014, I will continue to represent the residents to the best of my ability for the next term of office.
I would also like to thank my supporters and everyone who participated in the past election. I am once again asking for your support and vote on October 27, 2014. It is every citizen’s democratic right and civic duty to vote and elect their representative.
I have enjoyed being your representative for the past 26 years and would be honoured to continue working for you for the next term.
