“I have the vision and ideas for Pickering as a better place to live. I want to have far better and positive engagements with residents, which is currently lacking. I have the experience and the trust of residents, plus the capability and full-time commitment to improving the quality of life.” — Peter Rodrigues

– Testimonial from Pandit Damodar Sharma, Durham Hindu Heritage Centre, Pickering.
Peter believes Pickering needs a full-time councillor, who has been actually responsible and involved in managing the complexities of the issues and concerns in Pickering. During his time in council, Peter worked with staff to make video recordings of all Council and Council Committee meetings, continually voted against raising property taxes, and moved several motions to further reduce the budget expenditures. Peter Rodrigues understands that Pickering needs a more engaging Council, and the importance of having the voices of the residents represented strongly on Council. He has hosted dozens of meetings to engage residents and empower them through educational presentations that addressed questions and encouraged active community participation.
Peter will be Your Voice, but needs your vote to make our city a better place.
Thank you for your support.
