For over 16 years, my family and I have lived, gone to school, worked, played and volunteered in Pickering Ward 1.

Your voice should matter

Elect a City Council that will prioritize people over profit

Growth is inevitable, but it should be done in a way that is sustainable, responsible and inclusive. And not at the cost of Pickering’s quaint neighbourhoods and quality of living.

The people of Pickering deserve true representation where their concerns, ideas and voices are heard and addressed. That is my mandate as I put my name forward as candidate for City Councillor Ward 1.

Just so you know...

Jeanine is self-funded. She believes in investing in Pickering.

No developer donations. Jeanine does not accept donations from developers or their representatives.

No Pickering Airport. Jeanine will lobby the Federal Government to not approve a Pickering Airport.

Lobbyist Registry. Jeanine supports the creation of a lobbyist registry in the City of Pickering.

Meet Jeanine & her family

Over the past several years, I’ve become disillusioned with the political process and how the concerns of the people of Pickering have been ignored. I believe that it is time for a change—and together we can make a difference.

I would be honoured to be your next City Councillor and commit fully to the role to:

  • Represent the people in Ward 1
  • Instruct city staff to set policies in place that support the community vision
  • Ensure that finances are used effectively to make what the people want for their city happen

Your voice matters and my mandate is to make sure that it is heard.
