I’m Wanda Maw-Chapman, the current Ward 3 councillor, and would be honoured to be the deputy mayor for the Township of Springwater.
A little family history: I grew up on a farm on the 12th Concession of Edenvale, which is now called Glengarry Landing. My family sold the farm and moved into the village of Minesing. I attended Minesing Central Public School, then onto Barrie North Collegiate.
At 17, I moved to Elmvale, which I lived there for approximately 18 years, then moved back to Minesing, where I still reside today with my husband Mark and our daughter Gracy, who just started Grade 9 at Barrie North Collegiate. I have been calling Springwater my hometown for over 50 years. We are both grateful to have the opportunity to raise our daughter in Minesing and area where we both grew up.
My work experience working in the customer service field, with my current career of 23 years and past careers, has provided me with strong experience to recognize challenges, find solutions and be a voice that advocates for all residents.
I am been an avid volunteer for over 20 years:
Chair director of the Minesing Community Recreation Association.
Past-president and director of the Ladies Elmvale Curling Club, which I am still currently a member.
Past member of the 4H club, Brownies, Guides and minor ball, to name a few.
Was honoured to be chosen as the Minesing Citizen of the Year of 2022 for its 50th year.
During my present term of council, I have sat on several committees, both Minesing and Anten Mills Community Recreation Association, cultural advisory committee, grants advisory committee and recreation advisory committee.
As a member of Springwater council, I have demonstrated integrity, honesty, trust, and have a strong commitment to residents over the last term. I will continue to learn and educate myself with all development, agriculture, parks, recreation, trails and listen to all concerns at the municipal and county level.
I will continue connecting with residents and businesses of Springwater, and to be your voice election day is Oct. 24, 2022. I look forward to your support.
