Dear friends and neighbours of Ward 2,

Thank you for choosing me to represent you. It is truly a privilege to serve my constituents and be their voice at Council once more.

I have a great passion for Markham and that passion will only continue to drive me to work tirelessly for you and our City. The great thing about being a third term councillor is the experience and knowledge I bring to the table. There is still a lot to do and I will continue to direct my energy toward reducing traffic gridlock, expanding our seniors’ recreational activities and preserving our green space.

Having been appointed by the Mayor as the Chair of the Culture & Economic Development Committee for the new term (2018-2022), I look forward to being more active and involved in further growing our economy and building on our diversity in Markham.

You are a key part of the team that makes Markham the fantastic city that it is. Markham is a diverse, dynamic and desirable Canadian community and together we can ensure it stays that way. Your voice is important and we are asking to share your feedback on important items with our staff so we can implement it in new developments in Markham. We are using a new online platform, YourVoiceMarkham, to hear what Markham residents would like to see in their community. Our first project is Markham Centre, and we encourage you to take the time to share your feedback with us.

Please do not ever hesitate to contact me with any ideas or concerns. Call, e-mail or better yet, drop into my office. I welcome your thoughts and opinions. I also invite you to visit me on Facebook or Twitter. Your city is alive in all kinds of ways and my ever-changing pictures on Facebook will assure you of that.

Thank you so much for giving me the privilege of serving you once more.

I look forward to hearing from you.

Yours Sincerely,

Alan Ho
Councillor, Ward 2
