West End Advocate, Lawyer, and School Board Trustee Fabio Costante Files Nomination Papers to Run for City Council in Ward 2
On Tuesday, July 3rd, 2018, Fabio Costante will file his nomination papers to run for City Council in Windsor’s Ward 2.
Fabio has lived the majority of his life in Ward 2 and is currently the elected Catholic School Board Trustee for Wards 2 & 9.
In 2010, while in law school and living on California Ave., Fabio’s home was broken into while he was home. Recognizing that his neighbours shared Fabio’s concerns for their neighbourhood, Fabio started several crime fighting initiatives and founded the Our West End blog to share information important to residents in the west-end. With over 600 posts since 2010, the Ourwestend.com blog has developed into a tool for residents to celebrate good news stories about Windsor’s West End while addressing neighbourhood challenges and opportunities.
Sensing a need for residents to work together to build a stronger West End, Fabio founded the Our West End Neighbourhood Renewal, a United Way funded grassroots organization committed to making West Windsor a better place to live, work and play.
“I am excited to announce my candidacy for City Council in Ward 2. I look forward to continuing to serve the residents of Windsor’s West End as their representative at City Hall. As a neighbourhood advocate, School Board Trustee, and lawyer, I look forward to continuing to work to better the lives of residents of the City of Windsor as a strong voice for Ward 2.”
In 2014, Fabio was elected as School Board Trustee for Ward 2. Here, Fabio continues to advocate for the needs of Ward 2 residents. Highlights of Fabio’s term at the Windsor-Essex Catholic District School Board include securing funding for the construction of a $1.14 million theatre at Assumption College High School, along with securing millions in funding and programming for a new Assumption Middle School, and other capital improvements at both Assumption and St. James grade school.
A lawyer by training, Fabio was a Federal Prosecutor before opening up his own office in the heart of Sandwich Town in Ward 2.
Fabio is excited to announce his candidacy for Windsor City Council to bring a strong voice for the needs of the residents and businesses of Ward 2.
