On Monday, October 22, 2018, the citizens of St. Catharines voted for six regional councillors to represent them on Niagara Regional Council.

Though I had not done it before, because it should never be necessary, I ran on the need for integrity, accountability, and transparency. And I ran on the promise of open communication, because – in my view – we can’t have much/any integrity, accountability, or transparency if we aren’t committed to open dialogue with the citizens of St. Catharines/Niagara and the media.

To that end, I will use this website to do my best to keep you informed about what’s happening at Niagara Regional Council, to answer your questions, and to post the dates for my at least bi-monthly coffee meetings (which are really just an opportunity to meet in-person to chat about whatever regional political issues are important to you and discuss how I can help).

If you have questions, please don’t hesitate to e-mail me at laura@lauraip.ca.
