“On behalf of the board, management, staff and residents of Toronto Community Housing, it is my pleasure to congratulate the City Councillors on their appointments and welcome them to our team.  We value the continuity of Councillor Ana Bailão’s reappointment and look forward to the contributions of our newest board members, Councillor Raymond Cho, Councillor Joe Cressy and Councillor Frank Di Giorgio. They are joining us on the cusp of what will be a defining year for Toronto Community Housing and its residents.
