Especially at this time of year, it is important to remind ourselves to stay safe while driving our children to school. You may have noticed “Slow Down Signs” on the lawns near schools.

You may have noticed my team members at your door in recent weeks. We are knocking on doors in the ward to say hello and to pass on a message to complete our Ward 39 Rooming House Survey. As you know, the City is pushing through a pilot project that would allow Rooming Houses in our community as a “temporary study.” My position is clear: I am against Rooming Houses. If you have not completed the survey, please access it through my website at the following link and I appreciate your feedback: http://karygiannis.net/wp/local-engagement-3
