Congratulations and thank you!

The OCA Board is very pleased to congratulate our President of the past several years, Rawlson King, on his election as our new Councillor for Ward 13.

It has been almost 30 years since our ward elected a councillor from Overbrook. And Rawlson has made history as the city’s first black councillor. His progressive, robust platform signals the direction residents of this ward want for our City.

OCA looks forward to working with Councillor King on issues facing our ward and our community.

We had a pretty good voter turnout for a by-election complicated by 17 candidates from which to choose. All the candidates should be proud of their hard work in capturing the interest of our citizens. Thank you to Sheila Perry, Kasia Adamiec, Patrick Mayangi and Peter Jan Karwacki who are also from our own Overbrook/Castle Heights area, for caring about the City so much that they would invest their considerable time and resources in running for the councillor position. You have demonstrated our residents’ commitment to strong community. Well done!
