In addition to the traditional communication tools (email, phone), my commitment to building and maintaining the relationships between City Hall and residents will include all forms of social media such as Twitter (@dangibsonward1 and @Ward1Guelph), Facebook (Dan Gibson/Guelph) and a Ward 1 website ( will be used to update Ward residents on important City issues, announce meeting dates for town halls, and inform of important decisions by Council. To this end, I’m also committed to hosting bi-annual Town Hall meetings at two separate locations in the Ward. I have already sought out venues with one location identified near the Downtown and the other in East Guelph.

Ward 1, as your councillor I will not hide. I will be present, accessible and willing to listen while seeking to resolve concerns between the City and residents of our Ward.
