Local Councillor for Ward 3, Corinna Traill, was born and raised in Bowmanville. Having attended local schools and coming from a family of educators, Corinna understands the value maintaining a strong local school system and she is also a keen supporter of local arts and culture as a member of the Visual Arts Centre and a founding member of the Jury Lands Foundation, which she helped found to preserve Camp 30 for present and future generations.
She is also known as a Councillor who can “get things done”.
She is responsible for:
• Supported a New Twin Pad Arena and Swimming Pool – As Community Services Chair, Corinna prioritized community participation and enjoyment.
• Established the Seniors and Affordable Housing Task Force to address the need for affordable housing while retaining our small town feel.
As a firm believer in accountability and transparency, Corinna was the first member of Council to embrace using social media in 2010 as a regular method to communicate with taxpayers and she continues to champion more a more democratic process. If re-elected, Corinna will restore Committee meetings to the evening so no residents have to miss work to participate in Committee meetings.
After years of lobbying, the 2022 election will be the first electronic election: residents can vote from the comfort of their own homes by phone or computer which will help curb the spread of COVID-19 and increase voter turnout.
Other initiatives Corinna supported were extending the Quarry Bridge in Ward 3 and Baseline Road to Bennett to bring Toyota to Bowmanville, and she supported the transfer of 34 acres of parkland from the Bowmanville Zoo to the Municipality to create more green space for residents, and if-re-elected, to house a refrigerated ice skating trail.

The key is threefold: find efficiencies so we can make investments to create jobs and to grow our economy. Ward 3 residents should have more job options close to home”. – Corinna
