After winning the councillor seat of Ward 7, Jeewen Gill wrote :

Firstly, I want to thank everyone for the overwhelming amount of support I have received since last night.I am incredibly humbled and honoured that the residents of Ward 7 have entrusted me to be their voice on Council.

As a long-time resident of Ward 7, I have always been involved in local grassroots organizations and care deeply about my community—that is why I had put my name forward in this election.

My goal is to give back to this community that has given so much to my family and I.

Secondly, I would like to thank the eleven other candidates who entered this race. The community thanks you for you passion and dedication towards Ward 7. I know unequivocally that all twelve of us had the same vision in mind, which was improving and enhancing the lives of everyone in Ward 7.

This was a campaign that included everyone. We had a platform for Ward 7 and addressed the needs of the entire community. Furthermore, this was a campaign which listened to the residents of ward 7 instead of imposing its own views on the Ward.

My commitment to having a campaign which stood on inclusivity, acceptance, equality and diversity is a reflection of my personal beliefs, and as the elected representative for our Ward, I know it is important now more than ever, that we stay united in our shared purpose.

I want to commend the voters for being responsible, casting their ballots and for making their voices heard. By-elections usually have low voter turnouts, however, this time around, the voters in Ward 7 truly reflected their voices at the ballot box and that is something we can all be proud of.

I understand it may not have been an easy decision to cast a ballot due to the current conditions we are living in, yet we still had a fantastic turnout.

Thirdly, I know I can speak on behalf of everyone to thank the city staff for running a fair and safe election which was especially even more important now during a global pandemic. From the curbside voting, to implementing all the safety measures and precautions needed to hold this by-election, we would not be able to carry out this election without the thorough planning and safety by the city staff, so for that, you all deserve a big thank you and applause.

Lastly, I want to thank my family, friends and volunteers for their endearing love and support. I know it was not easy having to put this campaign on hold, but you were all patient and understanding of the entire election process, especially during the delay which caused much uncertainty for months on end.

I am aware that I will only have a 2 year mandate, therefore, I will do everything I can to prioritize the most important needs for Ward 7.

I look forward to being the next councillor for Ward 7.
