I’ve been part of the community since 2015 when I relocated from the big city with my husband Captain David Hook (retired) and our two children Brandon and Emma.
I have a proven history of community leadership, entrepreneurism and local advocacy. You may remember my inspirational youth programming at Studio Leslie Anne on John Street or the community-uniting events I hosted at the Arnprior and District Museum.
If elected as a Town Councillor, I promise to work hard for you, speak up when something isn’t right and help people discover the unique possibilities that exist only in Arnprior.
I envision a future for Arnprior that is rooted in compassion where we all work together to remove barriers to success and create an equitable society. One way to make this happen is to elect people to council that are committed to creating a more inclusive community.
You have the right to live in a safe community that is free from racism, discrimination and violence. This is not a current reality for everyone and that needs to change.
It is essential that we implement effective growth solutions that not only protect the unique qualities that make our community so attractive but also ensure that we don’t miss out on lucrative economic opportunities that would benefit us all.
We need a balanced plan to support growth with emphasis on four core elements.
Operating a small business in Arnprior can be both rewarding and challenging. I would know, I’ve done it myself and it was tough! We need to collaborate on creative ways to drive more traffic into Arnprior with an emphasis on a unified strategy to promote our local offerings and events.
I wholeheartedly believe that a community-led approach can help us tackle many local issues. One reason this is true is because of the heightened accountability factor that comes when you put your name to something you are passionate about.
Arnprior is home to many wonderful community serving organizations and caring residents. We need to establish modern amenities to support our growing population. Let’s make youth a top priority in 2023 and put our heads, hearts and resources together to get an Arnprior Youth Centre off the ground.
When you highlight something within our system that is broken, you should be commended, not shamed, blamed or ignored. You deserve to have your voice heard and concerns addressed in a timely manner.
I 100% support this beautiful, strong, courageous, generous, kind and smart woman on her journey for Arnprior Councillor. Leslie Anne is honestly one of a kind. I had the pleasure of meeting Leslie Anne through her studio she had opened for children and teens when my pre-teen daughter signed up for drama classes. What a welcoming and encouraging and uplifting human being she is. She put so much confidence into my shy girl while in her drama course and made us feel like we had known her forever. Being a part of her studio was not the only interactions I’ve had with Leslie Anne. She has reached out to me when my family was down and out, she’s helped in so many ways, her generosity, her kind words, her uplifting support, making me realize we are all human and doing the best we can. This woman is a mom, a friend, a resident, a supporter, a cheerleader, she’ll be in your corner when you need her and will do all she can to make everything better. Vote for Leslie Anne Hook for Arnprior Councillor ❤️❤️❤️ you’ll be happy you did.
Leslie...we met many years ago when I was the Chef at The 2 Grands...collaborated later on at the museum...In the new year my career will bring me back to Arnprior and I am so excited. I respect you and will always support you!
You are an incredible woman and leader! I’ve had the pleasure of getting to know you Leslie as an author and your powerful life story is so inspiring. Congratulations on jumping in, you have so much to offer and your community will benefit in many ways.
