For Barrie Ward 10
City Councillor

Your City. Your Voice.
Keeping Council Accountable
Hi, I'm Bryn Hamilton.

And I want to be your Barrie Ward 10 City Councillor.

I am not a politician. I am a working mother, health care executive, results-oriented go-getter, and for the last 40 years, a proud Barrie citizen. Most importantly, I am a neighbour that would like the opportunity to represent the Barrie Ward 10 community through city council.

Bryn Hamilton and family

Like you, I want to see our city continue to grow and prosper. To me, getting involved at the local level of politics is about the desire to improve things through the effective management of resources, strong fiscal oversight, and transparent accountability.

As an experienced governance director, not a politician, I will bring a fresh, positive and creative mindset to the Council, and through my work, help the city move forward in an effective, timely manner.

We all want a safer city. An affordable city. A sustainable city. A city where we can live, work, and enjoy.  I’m running to ensure that council is not only governed effectively, but to GET THINGS DONE and to improve the city I love.

I will make sure that all Ward 10 residents have a greater voice in city matters. Together we can ensure that Barrie continues to be a great place for residents and businesses to grow and thrive.

I'm out knocking on doors, but more importantly I'm listening...

Top 5 Issues from Ward 10 Constituents

Taxes are high. Housing prices and rent continue to soar. Barrie needs better accountability for how we spend your money.

Action: Work with council and city staff to i) reign in spending at city hall by completing a full tax audit and efficiency review; and ii) increase the mix of housing unit types to meet everyone’s needs and improve housing development times.

From speeding, to road maintenance, to the escalation of opioid use. We need a community we can all feel safe in.

Action: Address speeding in the school zones on Prince William Way and Sandringham Dr, as well as sections along Hurst Dr.; and demand an action plan to create a clean, safe, and vibrant downtown core.

People are tired and frustrated with the political sideshows. We need to restore function back on city council.

Action: Recommend all council members participate in a training session on how to function effectively and efficiently as a council. Create cohesion through an aligned vision, clear priorities and measurable goals to track progress.

Supporting local business and prioritizing new economic development is a must. We need to make Barrie open for business.

Action: Vocalize the need for a better economic development plan with a clear strategy to promote our city as a place to do business. Recommend a plan to identify and pursue new economic pillars to best utilize our industrial, commercial and institutional lands.

It’s time for less talk and more action. We need to do better for those who find themselves homeless in our city.

Action: Recommend stronger fiscal oversight and accountability for the millions of dollars that Barrie provides to the County of Simcoe for social housing services each year.

Providing value for money, managing residential growth, respecting the environment, and preserving green space were also top concerns for many residents. Your voices will continue to influence all the issues I will vote on as a councillor.

Let me know what I’m missing and what else matters to YOU.

About

Bryn

I was born and raised in Barrie.

I have watched the city grow from 25,000 people to over 150,000. I believe we are at our best when we are helping others, so I cannot think of a better way to give back to our community than joining city council.

Some may say I’m following in my father’s political footsteps as a former mayor, and it’s true – I share his same passion for the city and his drive to leave things better for the next generation. Having two children – Braxton (10) and Kinley (8) – I want to raise them in a safe city filled with opportunity, access to good education, ample employment, and affordable housing, so they can continue to live in the place they call home (and be close to mom!).

I have worked in healthcare for nearly 20 years, both clinically and in administration, with a few of those years at our very own Royal Victoria Regional Health Centre. As a trained governance consultant, I have learned the importance of finding cost savings, efficiencies, but above all, providing value for every dollar spent. I know how to take action to get things done. 

 

I am a self proclaimed over achiever, adventure enthusiast, and professional juggler of family, career, and life. I tell my kids “You will always miss 100% of the shots you don’t take”. Last year my goal was to race in an Ironman triathlon – a 3.9 km swim, 180 km bike, 42.2 km run – I crossed the finish line in 12 hrs. 57 min.

Now I’m ready for a new race – the 2022 City of Barrie municipal election – with my goal of crossing the finish line as your Ward 10 City Councillor, and to then give my focus to a city that I hope to enjoy over the next 40 years. On October 24, 2022, please elect me – Bryn Hamilton – as your Barrie Ward 10 City Councillor.
