RE-ELECT FOR COUNCILLOR, WARD 1, TOWNSHIP OF WILMOT
WHO IS ANGIE HALLMAN?
I am a lifelong resident of Wilmot Township and live on a farm between rural Mannheim and New Dundee with my husband and our three children. I have commited my career of twenty plus years to health and wellness care in our community.
I have an unstoppable passion to help others and I am motivated to assist our community to continue to flourish. It's been a great experience and honour serving the interests of our community and advancing the communities priorities.
Communities play a crucial role in helping families raise compassionate, inquisitive, active and accepting children who will also shape our communities and guide us all into the future. This community proves this, generation after generation.
I have made community safety, wellbeing and the environment part of every discussion during meetings. I started the Community Safety and Crime Prevention Committee of Wilmot, LED stop signs for crossing guards, the safe space rainbow stickers on all municpal buildings and the green initiative for carpool parking. I continue to advocate for action and solutions to the speeding issues in our community. I will continue to be this voice until a solution has been found.
I have had the pleasure to serve on the Strategic Planning Committee, Castle Kilbride Committee, Community Saftey and Crime Prevention Commitee, Court of Revision and Chief Administrative Officer hiring panel.
When the community was struggling to stay connected during the pandemic and children's mental health was severely impacted, I organized and led several safe public health verified community events over the three years. These events included Easter Bunny roadside visits, Reverse Santa Claus Parade, Reverse Easter Parades, music in the park and virtual community events.
I understand how municipal government works and know the value of advocacy to the Provincial and Federal governments. I was one of the first council members in Wilmot Township's history to attend the Association of Municipalities Ontario to advocate for Wilmot at ministerial meetings. This has included delegations to the Minister of Municipal Affairs and Housing, Minister of Infrastructure, Minister of Transportation, Minister of Indigenous Affairs and Minister of Agriculture, Food and Rural Affairs.
I am looking forward to continuing to be your voice as Ward 1 councillor in Wilmot Township.
Internet, telephone and paper ballot voting between Friday, October 14 at 10am to Monday October 24, 2022 at 8:00pm.

This is OUR Wilmot ❤
For over 150 years, Indigenous children in Canada were removed from their families and sent to institutions known as residential schools.
In 2008, the Truth and Reconciliation Commission was established to reveal to Canadians the complex truth about the history and ongoing legacy of the residential school system.
The TRC was intended to guide and inspire a process of healing and reconciliation between Indigenous families and non-Indigenous communities, churches, governments, private sector, and residents of Turtle Island / Canada.
In 2015, the TRC released a six-volume report, one of the reports outlines 94 Calls to Action on how
governments of all levels, institutions, and residents of Canada can support the process of reconciliation.
In the spirit of allyship and reconciliation, territory acknowledgments are made as a stepping stone to honouring broken treaty relationships. Wilmot Township is situated on the Between the Lakes Treaty of 1792.
Together as a community we raise our families, work and live upon the traditional land of the Anishinaabe, Haudenosaunee and Mississauga peoples.
TRC Calls to action numbers 3, 17, 40, 45iii, 57, 66, 69iii, 79iii and 82 are the specific items listed for muncipaities to address.
Our community should be very proud of the leadership and the work that the current council has taken in truth, allyship and reconciliation.
