Smitherman Campaign Kick-Off & Fundraiser

Dear friends,

Nearly 8 years has passed since I have reached out asking for your support. I do so today as I formally launch my campaign for Toronto City Councillor Ward 23.

My passion for politics burns as bright as ever and the opportunity to represent the dynamic neighbourhoods and people of the downtown that I know and love fills my heart with excitement. Having the support of my friends and that of my husband Rolando and Michael and Kayla has made the thought of a return to politics possible.

But why we do politics never changes. I have a proven track record as a community champion and I want to work with you and within our communities to help achieve collective goals – a safer, healthier, more prosperous Toronto.

Come celebrate with me and our Ward 23 Team. Please RSVP by responding to or at the Eventbrite page.

TTC: Dundas 505 or Parliament 65. Adjacent onsite paid parking available and ample bike parking. 

Should you be able to donate to the campaign please bring cheques and or credit card. Donations earn a generous cash rebate.

Every contribution of $100 or more will receive a voucher for my upcoming book: Unconventional Candour. To be released in spring 2019 by Dundurn.

For additional information and or if you can't make the event but would still like to donate, please send a private message to
