Gary and I met after I moved to Pickering in 2001, and needed insurance. What impressed me about him then was his genuine interest in learning my young family's specific situation, that he asked us the questions that got me thinking about how those needs were going to change, and the practical recommendations he made on how to be prepared for the future.It was about way more than insurance for him. It was about helping others.
A few years later, when I was a director at the Ajax-Pickering Board of Trade, I saw Gary repeat that experience many times working with businesses and community groups. He helped us cut through complicated matters, find common ground, and led us through new initiatives. From his dedication, hard work, and results, he was the obvious choice for president of Ajax-Pickering Board of Trade, a role in which he served us well.
I am confident he will perform to these same high levels in public office, and hence, it is my pleasure to endorse Gary as the obvious choice for Regional Councillor
Teresa and Tim
Tim and I have known Gary for nearly 20 years and have found him to be a caring, compassionate, intelligent person, willing to listen to all sides of an issue. His tireless involvement in the community, through The Ajax Pickering Board of Trade, Rotary, and the Durham West Arts Center, to name just a few, shows that he is a man of service and integrity, who truly wants the best for Pickering. We believe that it is time for a change in Pickering and that Gary has the passion, experience and commitment to be that change. We wish him the very best and urge our neighbors to cast their vote for Gary Strange, Regional Councillor, Ward 2 Pickering.
