I am your candidate for Ward 4 Councillor in the City of Vaughan.
For the past 20 years, Vaughan has been home for me, my family, my friends and my business.
Born June 28th, 1953 in Toronto, I attended Sir Sanford Fleming Secondary School, Seneca College and the University of Toronto where I studied politics and history.
My wife, Niki Giannantonio Weinberg and I will celebrate our twentieth wedding anniversary this year. We each have one son – Michael Weinberg and James Carnevale.
I am the proud owner/operator of a successful Vaughan-based company called Styles Q. Corporate Imaging. My business involves facilitating the marketing and promotional needs for small to mid-size companies.
My working career began at Air Canada as a Coordinator for Food and Beverage Service for all flights leaving Pearson International Airport where I worked for fourteen years giving me the opportunity to travel and experience the world.
I was in the entertainment industry for twenty years where I owned and operated major nightclubs as; The Spotlight Nightclub Newmarket, Rockers Nightclub, Toronto, The Pink Cadillac, Rexdale, and The Mix Nightclub in Mississauga.
I later had a unique opportunity to open In Style Jeanswear located in York University.
My interests include sports, travel and of course politics. I have, like many of my fellow Vaughan neighbours, a passion for motorcycles. For over seven years I have organized several motorcycle events to raise money for many different causes. The first event was the Ride to End Diabetes (RED) for the Canadian Diabetes Association, which raised over $50,000 in just one year.
Subsequent rides focused on raising funds for the new Mackenzie Vaughan Hospital. We have already raised $50,000 towards the Mackenzie Vaughan Hospital slated to open in 2020.
I am currently knocking on doors finding out what key issues are affecting you, your family in Ward 4, Vaughan as well as how I can gain your support. Feel free to take the Ward 4 Survey to let me know what’s important to you. ( It’s anonymous)
