My name is Shane Clarke and I am running in this fall’s municipal election to become your Councillor in Ward 5. I was born and raised here in London and my family and I live in Ward 5.

I have learned a lot about London over the last several years. I have been walking alongside vulnerable Londoners since 2012, holding positions working with municipal homelessness prevention and poverty reduction initiatives. I have also been lucky to get to know many great local entrepreneurs that have me excited about London’s economic future. I am well acquainted with London’s many strengths and also London’s unique challenges and I want to bring that unique perspective to City Council. I want to build an inclusive community where everyone has the opportunity to thrive and no one gets left behind.

I would be thrilled to have the opportunity to represent Ward 5 after this fall’s municipal election.  I will work hard to make London a city that works for everyone!

Your neighbour,
