Spring is in the Air

I love this time of year. The days get longer, the clothing gets lighter and everything seems to come alive again. Indeed, it is also a time of renewal and celebrations as we collectively celebrate some of the festivals of spring such as Nowruz, Easter, Holi and Passover.

As usual there is a lot going on in Richmond Hill and each month, in this newsletter, I try to distill some of the more interesting and pertinent council activities that impact Ward 4 residents. The “Council News and Highlights” section immediately below this section, gives readers a quick overview of some of the decisions, and activities that have been undertaken by Council in the past month.

In the sections below that, I try to provide a more in depth perspective relating to issues that are larger in scope. Toward the end of this newsletter a number of events that are taking place in the near future in and around our town are described.

There are links to further sources of information throughout the newsletter and, as always, I am happy to field questions, comments, kudos or concerns. Please do not hesitate to contact me by phone or email at any time. My email address is [email protected], my cell number is 416-346-3090 and my office number is 905-771-2480. I also have a website (www.davidwest-richmondhill.ca) that hosts further information and articles from past newsletters.

If you have friends or neighbours that you think might want to receive this newsletter you can forward it to them using the “Forward this Email” link in the footer of this email.

Thanks for taking the time to read this newsletter. It is through a good understanding of issues that we are a stronger community.

David West
