“Mississauga is working,” Mayor Bonnie Crombie told the crowd at a business networking event presented by the Mississauga Board of Trade on Sept. 19.
“Since this current council was sworn in, we all have so much to be proud of,” she said, at the annual State of the City address. “We’re doing what we said we would do.”
Crombie pointed to the city being home to more than 1,400 multinational firms, including 73 Fortune 500 companies, and a 13-year run maintaining its triple-A credit rating.
Citing a long list of accomplishments in business, city building and transit, Canada’s sixth-largest city is “strengthening the foundation to build Mississauga for the next fifty years” as the municipality gets set to celebrate 50 years in 2024.
“There’s a buzz about our city,” said Crombie. “It’s being felt around the country. The headlines speak for themselves. All eyes are on Mississauga. But make no mistake: in Mississauga, we don’t leave success to chance. We plan for it. We see it through.”
She concluded the campaign-style speech, adding, “As we look ahead, there is more to be done. We’ve only just begun. And I’m ready for the hard work that’s ahead of us.”
