Welcome to my Online Portfolio!
Hello, thank you for stopping by my official website.
My name is Ashley Bouman and I was born and raised in Cobourg, Ontario. In my 37th year of life, motivated by what I have seen as a tenant and worker in Cobourg, and my experiences as a Committee Member on the Town of Cobourg's Equity, Diversity & Inclusion Advisory Committee, I decided to run as a Town Councillor in the 2022 Municipal Election.
I did really well for my first try by getting 2,269 votes (33% of all viable ballots) but did not make it on Council this election.
I am a highly motivated community advocate with over 10 years experience advising and building partnerships within the not-for-profit sector in Northumberland County.
An award-winning visionary behind the progression of queer visibility and representation in rural Ontario.
Issues that I am passionate about:
Increasing Accessibility & Disability Advocacy
Queer Education & Representation
Environment & Sustainability
Attainable Housing & Tenant Rights Advocacy
Equity, Diversity & Inclusion
