Collucci Re-elected To Third Term As Ward 6 Councillor Looks Forward To Continuing To Deliver Results

MARKHAM, ONTARIO – After successfully being re-elected to her third term as Markham’s Ward 6 Councillor on Monday, Amanda Yeung Collucci thanked her supporters and voters, saying she was looking forward to continuing to deliver results for her constituents and the greater Markham community.

“I am thrilled to once again be representing and serving Ward 6 for the next four years on Markham Council,” Collucci said. “I want to express my sincere gratitude to my campaign team and volunteers for all their hard work and dedication. There is no doubt in my mind that their efforts contributed significantly to my re-election.”

“I would also like to thank all those who supported me through my eight years of service as Ward 6 Councillor.  All my supporters in Ward 6 who voted for and believed in me. My campaign team, volunteers and supporters are the driving force that inspires me to bring out my best to serve Markham every single day,” she added.

While canvassing during the campaign, Collucci spoke to hundreds of constituents who reinforced to her the importance of continuing to deliver results as she did during her first eight years in office.

“Keeping taxes low was a common refrain from my constituents,” Collucci explained. “Being Chair of Markham’s Budget Committee, I know how important it is to be fiscally responsible. It is imperative that we continue to achieve a below inflation property tax rate within a balanced budget while providing optimal municipal services.”

The maintenance, repair and building of infrastructure was also often brought forward by constituents to Collucci while she was canvassing on the campaign trail.

“Markham Council has set aside enough money to replace and repair the City’s key infrastructure for the next 25 years,” she said. “Furthermore, Markham’s continued growth will require the building of additional infrastructure to serve the growing community. This includes the building of green spaces, parks, traffic road networks, expansion of public transportation and much more to ensure that Markham continues to be a great place to live, work and play.”

Collucci is also looking forward to implementing strategies and plans to further enhance Markham’s tourism and culture.

“I will continue to take a leadership role on the board of directors of Destination Markham,” Collucci said. “It’s vital to promote Markham as a welcoming place to visit and host events such as sports competitions, conferences, entertainment and leisure activities.”

“We have some outstanding event facilities in Markham, including the Pan Am Centre and Markham Theatre. York University’s campus and a movie production facility will be here soon. Attracting tourists and new businesses to Markham will create more jobs and ensure that Markham is seen as a vibrant place for art and culture.”

Monday’s unofficial election results saw Collucci receive 4,921 votes, which is 79 percent of the 6,252 ballots cast in Ward 6.
