I have lived in Ward 1 for over 20 years. I am so grateful to
have been able to raise my now grown son Jan in this special
part of our phenomenal city that is near and dear to my heart.
Who else has a beach in their backyard?
I really enjoy being a secondary school teacher with the
Simcoe County District School Board and have for many
years had an interest in one day being part of Barrie City
Council. I hope my day has come! I have the time, the
energy and the ability to make a strong contribution on
I must say I am impressed by the decorum of the council
of the past eight years under the leadership of Mayor
Jeff Lehman and would be honoured to have the
opportunity to represent you as the Ward 1 Councillor.
Any questions please don’t hesitate to contact me.
Hope to see you at your door!
Thank you. Shaughna
Because it was 9 years ago and actually feels like another lifetime I didn’t think it relevant to my bid to become Ward 1 Councillor. However, sadly, an anonymous campaign and/or person has decided to use threatening innuendo to try and intimidate me into gathering my skirts and leaving the race.
Over 9 years ago and for a several week period I was involved and victimized in a relationship that subjected me to physical and other abuses. Subsequently there was an investigation by the authorities which included the Police. Consequently, I received protection, treatment and exoneration.
I urge anyone involved in an abusive relationship to seek help; it is available and I have and will continue to help anyone in this situation.

I am absolutely delighted my daughter Shaughna is so
excited about the possibility of representing us EastEnders
on the next Council. She will very capably represent the
much needed female perspective at that table.
Being our daughter, Shaughna has, all of her days, been
submerged in political conversation. Little wonder she
chose to do her Honours Bachelor of Arts in Political Science.
Shaughna has for many years participated in Municipal
matter discussions (often a sounding board) in my
preparation for Council Meetings.
I hope you will decide to give Shaughna your support on
Election Day. She has lived in the Ward over 20 years, she
is very interested, she is very intelligent and she will be an
excellent Public Representative. Best regards, Bonnie
