Smallman kicks off campaign for Council Representing Kitchissippi Ward in 2006 municipal election

Vicky Smallman, a community activist living in Hintonburg, today kicked off her campaign for Council representing Kitchissippi Ward in the 2006 municipal election. The campaign launch came at a gathering of her friends and supporters at the Roses Café Wellington on Wellington Street West.

Smallman is active in the Hintonburg Community Association, and is currently a Director of Creative Neighbourhoods, Inc, a non-profit organization dedicated to strengthening neighbourhood identity and improving the use of public space in Ottawa's neighbourhoods. She is also a founding member of the Ottawa Witness Group, a community policing watchdog.

In announcing her candidacy, Smallman touched on some of the issues she will stress during the election campaign, including environmental protection and "smart" development.

"Council needs to recognize the importance of planning and community development, and ensure that long-term priorities are not overwhelmed by short-term expediency," Smallman said. "I believe you can be practical without compromising your dreams and ideals: the key is in making smart choices, not just easy ones."

Smallman, who is celebrating her 38th birthday today, is currently a professional officer with the Canadian Association of University Teachers.

"Being a municipal councilor means listening, collaborating, and developing unique solutions to big and small problems," Smallman said. "It's an exciting challenge, and I can't wait to get started."
