Kungl wants to bring respect, response to council in Ward 3

Kungl brings experience in public health, governance, policy, community service, research, communications, project management

BarrieToday reached out to the eight candidates in the Ward 3 byelection and asked them why they thought they were best-suited to fill the vacant seat on city council. Six of the eight candidates responded. We are publishing their responses in their own words. Voting in the byelection ends Feb. 24. For more information on how to vote, click here

I'm passionate about building strong communities and find joy in giving back. I want to age well where I live and care about how decisions are made. Strong municipal representation is important to me and my heart and values are aligned to this role. I was inspired to run in the byelection due to the outreach by so many who believe I will be an asset to the ward and broader city.

I've lived in Barrie for 16 years and bring 19 years of experience in public health, health care, governance, policy, not-for-profit community service, research, communications, project management and engagement design. I hold a master of public health and designations as a certified health executive and an alternative dispute resolution professional, trained in ethical behaviour and decision-making. I am also a graduate of the Osgoode Health Law program, current board chair of the Alzheimer Society Simcoe County, an executive member of the Barrie East End Household Association and on the board of the YMCA Simcoe/Muskoka. 

I'm familiar with city council processes and have been involved in preparing delegations, shift government initiatives and supporting some of our most vulnerable. I established a successful health-care consulting business built on my reputation and work ethic. I offer Ward 3 a full-time councillor who's respectful, responsive and works for them. In me, they can expect – no surprises, no hidden agendas and no party politics.  

Our north end is a beautiful place to live and work and our voice needs to matter in how it is shaped over time. Voting Kungl is a vote towards building a better Barrie by selecting a candidate who truly cares about resident needs and representation. Ward 3, let’s build a strong council together, one that reflects the best in us.
