A proven leader who has been delivering results for 18 years as a City of Vaughan Councillor by working closely with Council colleagues, City staff and the citizens of Vaughan.

VAUGHAN, ON – The following statement was issued by Sandra Yeung Racco, a public servant who has worked tirelessly on behalf of the citizens of Vaughan for more than 18 years. First elected in 2003, Sandra is currently the longest serving Asian female politician in the City of Vaughan and York Region:

“After careful consideration and reflection on the work and accomplishments I have made over the past 18-plus years as local councillor, and evaluating the progress we, as Council, have made as a City, I have the acumen, the ability and the vision to be the next mayor of Vaughan.”

“I have demonstrated work ethic and tenacity, along with the principles of fairness, integrity, and accountability, and I will continue to lead Vaughan to the next stage of becoming the most desirable and welcoming place to live, work and play.”

“This decision did not come easy as there is still so much more to do in my long-time home of Ward 4, especially within the Vaughan Metropolitan Centre area; however, I will continue to advocate and move the many desired infrastructure and community improvement projects forward with the co-operation of my colleagues, stakeholders and the community at large.”

“Together, working with my Council colleagues, City staff and the citizens of Vaughan, we will continue to build a city that is recognized for accountability, transparency, sustainability and innovation. Effective and balanced leadership is key to Vaughan’s success, and I am confident that I will lead the city through this next phase of growth and development.”
