Resuming normal activities again
I know a few of my friends had wondered, “Where is Bob?” during this year’s municipal elections. There were some Mississauga municipal candidates: good and worthy people for the offices they are contesting, and also personal friends. I managed to help out in the waning days of the campaign.
After the Ontario election, I and my colleagues all needed the month of June to clean out our campaign office; constituency office; and Queen’s Park office. That was a of of work to do within just a few weeks.
By mid-July, I was being bothered by a hernia condition that, mercifully, did not affect me during the Ontario election. After the whole diagnosis, ultrasound, see a specialist, and book a surgery date process was complete, my surgery was performed on the afternoon of Wednesday October 10. The surgery feels like a complete success.
I had to promise my doctor that I would relax for the first few days (although he does want me on my feet doing light walking). I am not yet skating or running, but walking just fine, and looking forward to resuming the things I have always enjoyed. My target date to be back on the ice and in goal is during November. Many thanks to the team at Credit Valley Hospital, where Dr. Don Coughlan and a great team in surgery looked after me. I walked in and walked out within a few hours.
Moving on with life
My former MPP Constituency Office in Meadowvale closed in late June. We have returned the keys to our landlord. The Legislature has taken back its property. If you are looking at this site to reach the new Member of Provincial Parliament for Mississauga-Streetsville, the Constituency Office address and telephone number remain unchanged.
My former staff and I have, for the past 15 years, enjoyed the privilege and responsibility of serving our neighbours in Lisgar, Meadowvale and Streetsville. Life continues. We thank the many friends we made during our years of service for their contributions to making our northwest corner of Mississauga a better and stronger community.
I listened to suggestions, and considered some options during a short breather after the hectic life leading up to and through the last election campaign. The option I chose was to run for Peel Region Chair this fall.
Please do not send e-mail to our former Constituency Office e-mail addresses any longer. My former MPP e-mail address no longer works. I welcome your e-mails and letters. To get the postal address for personal mail to Bob Delaney, please request Bob’s postal address at the e-mail address below.
You can still reach former MPP Bob Delaney by e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org.
