Growing up in Etobicoke, Ontario, Arthur always had a deep and passionate interest for politics and history from an early age. In his senior year at Martingrove Collegiate Institute, he was voted Vice-President to the Student Association Council where he thrived in his role as a helper and capable leader.
He carried on this commitment while attaining a Bachelor’s degree at the University of Toronto majoring in History, and with a double minor in Political Science and European Studies. Balancing between academia, Tri-Campus level sports, and volunteering for community events, Arthur continuously focused on bettering himself while also supporting those around him.
In 2013, he moved to Ottawa to pursue graduate studies at Carleton University in the Infrastructure Protection and International Security Program. He was voted to be Chairperson of the Graduate Residence Caucus and once again undertook a leadership role, effectively meeting the needs and difficulties faced by his peers.
Today, Arthur works in Ottawa as a public servant. He’s lived in Centretown for over 4 years and between enjoying the numerous parks and biking trails, the delicacies offered by small shops and businesses, meeting and working with dedicated individuals, he considers Somerset his new home.
Arthur is ready to represent the Somerset community at the municipal level, to address important social and economic issues of the downtown core and continue to care for the people living in this vibrant community.
