Ward Ramsay

My name is Cynthia Guerard, I am one of two Councillors representing the Ramsay Ward. I was born and raised on a dairy farm in Pakenham. My husband Kevin and I got married, built a home in Ramsay, raised our 3 daughters and have welcomed 4 grandchildren. I am the owner and operator of My Upholstery Shop, found in downtown Almonte, which I started in 1989.

I believe that the skills and knowledge that I have acquired as an independent business owner provides me with unique understanding which I can bring to Council.
I have been involved with the BIA (Business Improvement Association) in Almonte; chaired the Ice Cream Festival; was on the original board of TYPS(Taking Young People Seriously); coached soccer and broomball; refereed many different sports; volunteered at Light Up The Night; was on the Board of Mississippi Mills Landlords Association; we have opened our home to multiple (7+) exchange students and I have volunteered for many different programs and activities around our municipality.

I currently sit on the Accessibility Committee, the Community and Economic Development Committee CEDC, the Parks and Recreation Committee and on the Howard Allen Recreation Committee

I hope to bring a “common sense” and a “needs before wants” approach to the council chambers of Mississippi Mills.
