In October 2022, I ran for City Council; I lost, but what a ride that was. I learned so much. Specifically, I love politics. As I walked the campaign trail and listened to you, it was clear how much people hated the current councillors. I am amazed at your comments of distrust, dislike and rage. I felt your anger. That said everything to me; it is time for real change.
I learned so much on this journey, and I can tell you this to be true: I am a better person for running in this election. I know myself better; rejection is a "word." I love to speak my mind: as I say, I lay my cards on the table. I say 'No' more, stand up for myself, agree to disagree, and do not compare myself to anyone. I have a NO ASS-HOLE rule, and I don't give a buck about drama. I believe in honesty, community, helping others and living my best life.
So, I am here to stay. I will build this over the next four years so more of you will know me. I am working hard to create change here in Brampton. Our city is being destroyed by race wars, a lack of vision for the infrastructure needed for this change, and, more importantly, the people here need leadership; I hear you.
If you want to help me, please share my website, teamtracy.ca, follow me on Facebook and Twitter, and sign up for my newsletter. We also have a good following on Nextdoor, and we are starting to meet at our women's group. A group that welcomes men but focuses on building women's interests.
Thank you for the love you all share. Specifically, the lady who stopped in her car to hug me, the man who came by my home to tell me how proud he was of me, and the family who blew me kisses across the street as we walked by the bus stop. My daughter tells me I am a better mother, and my son tells me I am a true leader. My team starts with you, and we can change our city together. Thank you, my friend. Let's work on this together.
