“Ajax is my home. It’s where I raised my family. It’s where I’ve built my Foundation. It’s where I’ve worked to build up health care and fight for the most vulnerable. And fighting for the people of our community — for their health, well-being and success — has become my passion. I hope to continue to fight for all of us as our new mayor.”
Carion is a Member of Lakeridge Health Board of Trustees, Board Quality Committee & Co-Chair Ajax Pickering Hospital Community Panel.

“For me, Ajax represents hope — as it does for so many of us. Ajax needs to be a town where anyone and everyone has an equal opportunity for success. This is why I’m running for Mayor — to do my best make sure that no matter who you are, you have every opportunity to make your dreams come true, right here.”
“Ajax should always be a place where we can raise our children, safely, happily and with a sense of hope. After years of the same name in the Mayor’s Office, it’s time for a new face, new ideas and a real, positive change.”
