ABOUT ME

TRACY
HIPEL

Born and raised in Cambridge, I attended Ryerson Public School and William G. Davis and Preston High School.
 

My family has deep roots in Preston. We were always proud to be able to give back to the community. 
 

You can usually find me at local charity automobile shows and cruises proudly displaying my own classic car.
 

I have been employed at Babcock and Wilcox(BWXT) for the past 29 years and currently serve as the Health and Safety Co-chair representing hourly employees.

 

My Mission

The residents of Ward 3 (Preston) need and deserve a strong voice on Cambridge City Council. I am running to give you that voice; a voice from you, not to you. Change is needed in order to improve communications between residents and council and to provide more accountability from your elected officials. Taxpayers of Ward 3 and all of Cambridge must be respected, now more than ever. It is you who pay the city’s bills and it must be you who decides how your tax dollars are spent. As your councilor for Ward 3, I will step up, speak up and stand up for you

 

Community Involvement

Throughout the years, I have coached hockey, Cambridge Youth Soccer and for the Cambridge Ball Hockey Association.

For over 25 years, I have had the privilege of refereeing for Cambridge Minor Hockey and Men’s Industrial Leagues. Since playing minor hockey as a youth in the Preston community, I've continued to play on local ‘old-timer's teams’.

In 2013 I represented Preston residents at an environmental tribunal, regarding contamination issues concerning the Bishop Street Community. Over the past 13 years, I have remained actively involved as an advocate for the group.

In 2017 I experienced success in appealing to MPAC to have property taxes reduced for residents negatively impacted by environmental concerns.

On August 8, 2018 I received notice that I won my case against The Assessment Review Board to receive a further reduction on my taxes.

It was my honour to be one of the three people, in conjunction with the Preston Legion, who initiated the project to erect three memorial benches for our local veterans. These tributes now stand at the Preston Legion and the Cenotaph.
