Occupation City Councillor, Ward 33 - Don Valley East
Location 100 Queen St. W. Suite A4, Toronto, ON, Canada
Introduction Here is the North York Mirror "A" Report Card entry: The first among rookies, and a real star: the councillor you’re glad you have if you do and wish you had if you don’t. This card-carrying Liberal has moved into the juicy middle of the Mayor David Miller circle of power – so much so that columnists and observers mistake her for a New Democrat. She took over the chairmanship of the powerful works committee in June, while returning to the heavy-lifting budget advisory committee, and has brought a balanced approach to both. Carroll also passed her Aug. 19 trial by fire – or rather rain – helping hundreds of homeowners in her ward whose basements were flooded in the late-summer deluge. Shelley Adds: Working on illegal rooming houses. MLS have closed four and are working on owners of several more. Tackled development applications with massive community engagement. Represents the City at the association of Metropolises. Conducted three-month review of TTC Budget and brought Capital Budget inside debt guidelines in her first term. She now is now Chair of Council's Budget Committee and sits on Mayor Miller's Executive Committee.
