I want to ensure that the record is corrected to reflect that the unfounded charges under the Municipal Elections Act against my in-laws were withdrawn by the authorities.  

Public service and politics are honourable and worthy endeavours. The responsibilities and demands are many, and balancing family life can be very challenging. My husband and I very much appreciate the support my in-laws provide to us, always. In turn, we hope we bring enhancement to their lives.

I am proud and dedicated to serve the people of Oakville.  There is no doubt that the public spotlight can often attract criticism that is both harsh and unfounded.  We are all thankful that the ordeal that my family was unnecessarily subjected to has now come to a rightful end.

Pavan Parmar, Regional and Town Councillor, Ward 7 Town of Oakville
