Athina's Platform - Vision & Goals 


Minimize any increase in Property Taxes & City User fees: 

Your money and enjoyment of your property and living in Mississauga are important. 

I will work for a freeze on property taxes & city service & usage fees. 

As well, oppose any attempts for any hidden fees and taxes from being enforced. 

Finally, I will ask for a review of the city budget and work with Mayor, other City Councillors &

City staff to reduce inefficiencies. 

Where possible, I will push for tax cuts.


I believe in openness, fairness and working together and will stand up to corruption/special

interests.  My campaign is funded by grassroots volunteers who want and understand the 

importance of change that is needed - for a new voice at City Council for Ward 3. 

Donations from developers and other special interests groups - and most of whom do not live

in Mississauga - are questionable as well as why any Councillor would accept such funding

for their campaign when the purpose of serving first & foremost are the residents of Ward 3.

I commit to accountability to residents of Ward 3 & prioritize their best interests at all times.


Informing and ensuring residents are informed and updated on City and Regional programs,

events and proposals for change(s) in Ward 3 neighbourhoods and most importantly in

City proposals that would impact all residents.  Receiving community feedback and making

sure that your voice is brought forward to city staff and Council before any changes could

possibly be approved and allow for the voice of the majority of the residents to direct any

proposed plans. Ward 3 residents being updated in a timely manner and correctly informed

is both vital and mandated. 

Infrastructure in our Community: 

City and Regional Proposed changes to be those that do not affect the residents' daily

livelihood and enjoyment of their properties.  For example, in City 's Infrastructure Project

proposals - cycle tracks/lanes to be given greater consideration of where they would be

placed so that they do not pose direct nor indirect safety concerns to residents who already

live on those streets. 

All residents have the right to safety and accessibility.  One group cannot trump nor

jeopardize another and working with the residents who would be impacted is a priority

and necessary in any such project for the most favourable resolution to all. 

Plus, any type of development to not directly impact the daily lives of resident such as in

the Applewood Heights SS's community field redevelopment and great impact to

neighbouring properties and homeowners of light pollution and noise.  Such redevelopment

or 'revitalization' cannot be allowed in Ward 3 at the expense of affecting the daily

livelihood of residents.


Residents need and deserve to feel assured that as a community we are safe and everypossible effort is being

made for this in our homes, on our streets, at our parks & schools. 

I oppose to 'supervised consumption sites' /safe injection locations in Ward 3 and would work towards alternative addiction recovery options.  I commit to working towards this goal of safety and well-being for all

residents at all times and for all Ward 3 neighbourhoods.

Term limits for Mayor and City Councillors: 

Currently, City Councillors are able to retain their seats until they choose to retire if

they continue to be re-elected. This does not serve the best  interests of residents and

questions democratic accountability.  If elected, I commit to ask and push for a 2 consecutive

term limit for the positions of Mayor and City Councillors.
