John was born and raised in Oshawa, growing up playing hockey and many other sports in this city. After graduating from Eastdale C.V.I. and the University of Ottawa with honours he chose to return home where he acquired vast business experience during his professional stints with several private sector employers. This business experience enabled John to develop a strong business acumen, decisive decision making ability and prudent financial sense.
John continues his love of sports by playing Hockey and Ball Hockey as well as coaching children’s soccer, hockey and ball hockey. “I went on to volunteer as a coach as I feel it is important to give back to the city that has given me so much. My decision to run for Regional and City Council was largely influenced by my desire to give back to my community.”
John and his spouse Sara have been together for over 18 years and have two sons together that they adore. “Everything I do, I do it for them, I feel that it is important to raise our sons in a city that they can be proud of, one in which they can one day build a family of their own in.”
John has spent the last four years representing you as an Oshawa City Councillor. “I am excited to earn your vote again and step up and represent you at the Regional and City level.”
