MARKHAM, Ontario - On Saturday, September 25, 2010, The Armenian National Committee of Toronto (ANCT) organized a reception on behalf of the Armenian community of Markham for a number of candidates running for leadership positions in the upcoming Town of Markham municipal elections.
The event was held in the home of ANCT member and Markham resident, Nshan (Mark) Atikian who welcomed a number of candidates including: Deputy Mayor Jack Heath; Regional Councillor Gordon Landon; current Councillor for Ward 6 and Regional Council candidate, Dan Horchik; Councillor for Ward 8, Alex Chiu; and Councillor Candidate for Ward 6, Khalid Usman.
Mr. Atikian said about the event, "Today served as an excellent opportunity for the candidates from the Town of Markham to meet with the Armenian National Committee's election team, as well as their own constituents, to express their vision for the Town of Markham, while also hearing the questions and concerns of the Armenian community."
The candidates were each given the opportunity to speak on the issues they feel are most important to the continued growth and success of Markham. They spoke about issues such as taxes, waste management, energy, public transportation and traffic.
ANCT Chair, Vahan Ajamian noted, "This reception served as a good way to discuss issues of concern with candidates looking to be our elected representatives for the next four years. The ANCT will be publishing our endorsement list very shortly for key races in the Town of Markham and City of Toronto. I am sure our community will take it into consideration and go and make its voice heard on October 25, 2010."
