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.
Regional Councilor, John Sprovieri.

Hi Councillor Sprovieri,
I’m very happy to tell you that a Mr Johny Kalsi came over this morning to discuss the problem that I had regarding my driveway. He was very attentive to what I told him and assured me that the work will be done starting next week. A very nice gentleman, the type of guy who should be an example of what a “public servant” ought to be.
Mr Sprovieri I thank you very much for getting the wheels in motion and proving once again that your constituents come first and you’re always there to assist in any way you can.

Let me thank you for the help and support I received from you to resolve the issue of relocation of gas and hydro meters. This is the day I was waiting from the day of closing of my home. At this stage only gas meters are relocated, hydro meters may be within next week. It would not have been possible without your support and action taken. The quotation “Slow and steady wins the race” is proved to be true.
Once again thank you very very much.

Subject: RE: Safety of Peel’s Drinking Water
For the record, John is our Champion on Regional Council. What sets him apart from the other Councillors is, his continued efforts to listen, learn and act in the best interest of his constituents. John is doing his due diligence and getting the answers he needs to make an informed decision when he presents to Council that, ‘Fluoridation is unproven, unnecessary and unethical’ therefore the Region must end this outdated practice to protect the health and well being of the 1,300,000 citizens.
We are very grateful John for your support and commitment and we know that together
WE WILL STOP ARTIFICIAL WATER FLUORIDATION IN THE REGION OF PEEL.
On Behalf of the Concerned Residents of Peel

REGIONAL COUNCILOR JOHN SPROVIERI.
Our theme for this Black History Month is: “Restoring the Dream .“ Please be prepared to bring a greeting to the congregation. Thanks! Again
You are such a great people person. We appreciate you.
Thanks Mr. Sprovieri. All thanks to your efforts and prompt response, the
sidewalk has been fixed today. We are so thankful for having a caring
councillor in our ward.
Please do let us know if we can be of any service (volunteering for
community services etc.) ever. We would gladly share the responsibilities
as commmunity members to make our neighbourhood the best place to live.
Hi John, …
John, I thank you for your interest and support. Your name is always the first to come to mind when I think of “Brampton” and the “person” who really believes and supports the people.
“Good day Councillor Sprovieri,
I can not thank you enough for all your help. Friday’s golf tournament was a success because of your commitment to families of children with special needs achieving equitable access to summer camps with the City of Brampton. My hope is that you enjoyed yourself and I will see you at next year’s tournament. Thanks again, I couldn’t have done it without you.
Thank you for your response. I am glad to read that the city is working for it’s residents, and I am proud that Brampton has responsible officers and administrators like you. Thank you once again,
Yes I did help with the campaign in 2006 and I had a fun time doing it. It was a great experience and I think it also helped me experience first hand how much of a difference a little bit of effort makes. It has motivated me to make a difference and that’s why I got together a team of us girls to participate in the run because every bit helps. I see people like yourself making a difference all the time and that is what I ultimately want to be able to. Thanks once again John. You have been a great inspiration and are a strong leader.
“Thanks John. You are a hard working Councillor and a very decent man. All the best.
You have went above and beyond your call of duty in helping me with this and I am grateful to you for it. You are great at what you do!
“Thanks John and Vicky for your continual support in getting the work done. Your efforts have strengthened my trust that our elected officials equally thrive to attend to smallest issues as the big ones.
Thanks city staff for taking up the job.
With best regrads
“Thank you thank you so much John, we are fortunate indeed to have sincere councillors like yourself. Just knowing that you are so willing to rise to the occasion means a lot. Truly appreciate your input.
Unlike other politicians , you have kept your word in true letter and spirit and your sincerity has worked wonders.Due to the attention given by your goodself in the matter,the ‘Bradon Blvd’ bears a new look now.Thank you very much and warm regards.
They are cutting the grass behind our home this morning—-I am sure your assistance and dedication to your citizens is the reason why!!!I appreciate and thank you for your continued involvement in our community.
Progress is slow, but steady. The folks who opposed us in Peel on our issue have been recently exposed in Montreal. God does exist
All the best to you and your family in 2010. The country needs more councillors like you.
“Hi John, I would like to thank you very much for everything. I told my family that you do not remind me of a politician – Hats off to you.
We would like to express our sincerest gratitude to you. We your loyal supporters feel that there could not be a more honest, sincere and dedicated representative for the people of Brampton. We came to you and many other officials for assistance regarding our concern and objection to the proposed cell phone tower to be erected adjacent to our homes. You were the first to respond and take action. You represented us at our meeting with the City of Brampton and came up with solutions. We respect and appreciated this assistance and the continued support you give us regarding this critical matter. We really do hope that everyone can see what an incredible person you are.
You truly do care for the people you represent! We thank you for everything you have done for us and all that you continue to do.
