Newsletter: Ward 20 office staff and contact update

Dear Friend --

After an exciting month following the election, the end of my first official week as Ward 20 Councillor is in sight.

My sincere thanks to Ceta Ramkhalawansingh, Adam Vaughan, and their staffs, who all played a major role easing my transition into City Hall while I filled my days with staff briefings, report reading, and community meetings.

As I have stressed time and again, I intend to be a strong, progressive voice for Ward 20. In a busy ward like Trinity-Spadina, that means building a strong team to help represent the diverse communities that make up our beloved downtown. I am thrilled with the team we have put together at City Hall, with a mix of new and old faces that many of you will already know. 

Joining me are:

  • Andrew Schwab, Executive Assistant
  • Lia Brewer, Executive Assistant
  • Brent Gilliard, Constituency Assistant
  • Robin Buxton Potts, Constituency Assistant
  • Angela Daeun Bae, Administrative Assistant

We encourage you to contact our office regarding municipal issues at any time, at [email protected], or by calling 416-392-4044. Our new website is slowly growing at, with new features and information being added all the time.

Alongside my terrific staff, we intend to be engaged and active representatives for the residents and communities of Ward 20. To do that, we need your help - please contact our office to let us know about any community events, issues, or problems.

Now, let’s get to work.

With my deepest thanks,

Joe Cressy
City Councillor, Ward 20 Trinity-Spadina
