My name is Maleeha Shahid and I am running to be your next Councillor in the East Ward of Whitby. My family and I have been residents of this town for 12 years. I am a wife and a mother, raising three active children in our ward.
As a successful local self-employed woman for over 10 year I know first-hand what it takes to run a business and can relate directly to small business owners. I am known for my excellent customer service, problem solving, and interaction with the public. This is the type of experience we need on Whitby Council if we want to attract new businesses.
I have been involved as a volunteer with the Whitby Sunrise Rotary Club and Durham Challengers Baseball, with a view to bringing people together, to make Whitby the best it can be.
I am committed to ensuring that Whitby continues to be prosperous and a safe thriving place to work, live and start a business. My experience in our community, as a parent, homeowner, a fiscally responsible businessperson and community volunteer, has given me an eye for the issues that matters to our ward. With your support, I will work to bring taxes in line, to make our neighbourhood safer and to attract investment to our community.
I pledge to be your voice at the town hall, I will work hard at all times to protect your interest. On Oct 22nd I would be grateful for your support.
I would love to hear from you, my neighbours, about your concerns and prioroties for our beautiful community. I can be reached directly at 905-925-4845 or at firstname.lastname@example.org I look forward to the opportunity to sit down with you and chat in the days ahead.
