Bonnie Crombie Receives Overwhelming Mandate in Re-election Bid
Mayor will always focus on working for you
Mississauga — In front of a packed house at Le Treport Banquet Hall in Mississauga, Bonnie Crombie claimed victory in her bid for re-election as Mayor of Canada’s sixth largest city.
Speaking to supporters Crombie said, “Mississauga is our city, and I am truly honoured that you are giving me the opportunity to continue to be your voice at City Hall. I could not be more excited and energized for what the future will bring. Working together, we will continue to build and shape this great City.”
Running against seven opponents, Crombie won the election with 77% of the vote, demonstrating the overwhelming confidence that Mississauga residents have in her leadership and vision for the future of the City.
During her first term, Crombie worked diligently to keep Mississauga an affordable place to live, work and raise a family by ensuring property taxes remained below the GTA average along with implementing a plan to build more affordable housing for middle-class families. During her speech, she stressed her commitment to keeping taxes competitive and working to ensure that resident’s hard-earned dollars stay in their pockets.
As the Mayor of one of the most diverse cities in the world, Crombie has a proven track record of building an inclusive city, a place where everyone sees themselves, where everyone belongs, and where everyone can grow and thrive.
“Mississauga is emerging as a world-class city. We’ve gone from being an edge city to Toronto, to a leading-edge city in North America. Mississauga has become a top destination for businesses to invest and—most importantly—a place that people want to call home.”
Crombie ended off her speech by energizing the crowd with her vision for a promising future for Mississauga.
“Our best days are still ahead of us. Working together, we can accomplish anything. Mississauga’s future is as bright as it is limitless. Now, let’s back get to work.”
