George Cabral — Springwater Ward 1
from Barrie Advance
This year marks my 30th year a resident of Springwater. During this time I’ve been very fortunate to enjoy the wonderful lifestyle that the Village of Elmvale, and the surrounding township of Springwater, affords everyone by combining its unique small-town charm with a vibrant rural farming community.
My two children grew up here, attended school here, and continue to maintain close connections here. My spouse and I are proud to live here, and cherish the relationships we’ve built along the way. Over the years I’ve been involved with Scouts Canada, Elmvale figure skating, community fundraisers, and for eight years as director of the Ontario Police Badge Ride, a charity motorcycle event.
I’m a retired police officer, having served more than 30 years, two of them as an instructor at the Ontario Police College. My experience in community service, and building community partnerships, provides me the skills and abilities to unite and engage others to move forward. I pride myself on being fair and open, always looking past road blocks that stop others, in order to achieve consensus and produce solutions.
Since 2008, while under seasonal contract to Springwater, I’ve had the opportunity to work alongside very dedicated individuals. This experience has provided me unique insight and understanding into the workings of our township, both inside and out.
I’m grateful to our community for all its provided, and now it’s time to give back. I am seeking the privilege to represent you, to be your voice, to press your concerns and issues on your behalf. I believe it’s critical to keep our rural flavour intact, and even more so given the significant changes coming with more housing, more development and the added strain on our infrastructure. We all work hard for our living, and I will strive to make sure your tax dollars are working hard for you every single day.
