As the Deputy City Manager of Administrative Services and City Solicitor, I have the privilege of working with almost every department in the City to provide administrative and legal services.
I joined the City of Vaughan in 2019 as part of the Senior Leadership Team – Executive. It is my goal on the executive team to be a champion of the 2022-2026 Term of Council Service Excellence Strategic Plan to provide the best services to the corporation and residents to carry out strategic priorities such as operational performance, good governance and citizen engagement.
There are two departments under the portfolio I lead: Legal Services and the Office of the City Clerk. Legal Services provides legal advice to the entire organization and Council on a variety of matters including risk management and municipal law. The Office of the City Clerk manages Council and Committee Meeting agendas and administration. They also manage corporate policies, administer marriage and liquor licences, and run municipal and school board elections.
Working with such a dedicated team makes coming to work easy. I look forward to working with staff who provide high-quality service delivery and continue moving the city forward.
