Hi there! Tamsin Bearsley, at your service.
Councillor and previous Mayor for City of Kingston, South Ward. Also teacher, IT professional, mother and identical twin.
Here are some real questions that people have asked me.
So, Tamsin, why did you become a councillor?
When I was working during the Kingston floods of 2011, the most frequent feedback I heard was “I wish you were on council!”
I believe that our community needs leaders with a sense of fairness, common sense and natural curiosity. I’m always trying to live up to my own standards!
I grew up in a religious community that discouraged civic participation, didn’t vote, and discouraged women from speaking up for others. So that makes me a rebel! Every day we get to choose the kind of person we are.
