My name is Julie Wright and I live in Ward 7 in Uptown Waterloo.
I care about my community and want to help Waterloo thrive in the years ahead. I also value accountability and believe that we need to make good decisions now to ensure a bright and prosperous future for all Waterloo residents.
Cities have a central role to play in combatting climate change. I’ve spent a lot of time and energy collaborating on sustainable pathways to 2030 and look forward to applying what I have learned at Council.
Waterloo is situated on the Haldimand Tract — land that was granted to the Haudenosaunee of the Six Nations of the Grand River and is within the territory of the Neutral, Anishinaabe, and Haudenosaunee peoples.
I am inspired by the Dish with One Spoon Treaty that governs the shared territory of the Great Lakes Region in Southwestern Ontario. It asks that we take only what we need, leave some for others and keep the dish clean.
I am inspired by the generosity of neighbours, friends and colleagues who share their talents and expertise. I’m a problem solver and believe that I can help my Uptown neighbours navigate municipal issues — from city services, to affordable housing, infrastructure, active transportation, economic development, and more.
Do you want to host a backyard gathering this fall to talk about Uptown and what matters to you and your neighbours?
Are you interested in being involved in the Wright Ward 7 campaign?
