Here’s What Residents Have to Say About Raj

My name is Bonnie. I have been a resident of Bradford, West Gwillimbury for 32 years. I would like to endorse Raj Sandhu for the position of Deputy Mayor. As a councilor, he speaks and does that which he says he will do. His leadership skills are very professional and he is for the people of Bradford. He goes above what is called for as a leader. If you want a Deputy Mayor who cares about the people and the town, consider voting Raj.
