JEFF HENRY RUNNING FOR REELECTION
Waterloo, ON – This morning, Jeff Henry filed papers to stand for re-election as a candidate in Waterloo’s Ward 6 (Central-Columbia).
“As a councillor, I’ve had a chance to see what local government really means for people across Ward 6, affecting how we live, how we work, and how we play,” Henry said. “We’ve taken significant steps that have improved the quality of life in Ward 6, but there is still a great deal left to do.”
Henry has served as Ward 6 Councillor since his initial election in 2010. During his time in office, he has supported Beachwood neighbourhoods as they developed their own solutions to funding pressures on neighbourhood pools and tennis courts, spearheaded Council involvement in the Northdale Land Use and Community Improvement Plan, and fought to preserve diverse neighbourhoods and ensure resident safety through the Residential Rental Housing Bylaw.
“I’ve listened carefully to the community and brought people together to solve the challenges we face head-on,” said Henry. “I want to keep working hard to turn the community’s bold new vision for Northdale into reality, to review our innovative rental bylaw to make sure it is meeting our community’s needs, and to collaborate with residents across Ward 6 and across the city on projects that strengthen our community.”
Henry works in leadership development at the University of Waterloo, where he received degrees in both Computer Engineering and Political Science. He recently completed his term as the President of the local Canadian Mental Health Association branch, where he guided the organization through a successful merger to provide more and better mental health services in our community. Jeff lives in Ward 6 with his wife, Kate.
