No one knew anything about Eden Wood.

There was nothing on social media; some thought she was a stand in candidate in place to pull votes away from Shawna Stolte the incumbent candidate for the ward 4 seat.

Turns out Eden Wood is very real, a mother of a daughter and a son who play soccer.

Mom has that clean cut Ivy League look to her. She is involved in police volunteer groups: doing victim support and public safety committee work.

She Has worked in the private sector with Fisher & Ludlow,  a Nucor company that makes industrial grating. She has taken community college level courses at Sheridan focused on accounting and business administration.

Wood was the President of the Burlington Crime Prevention Committee that “tackled issues on vandalism and crime prevention by recognizing the importance of homeowners landscape and design. We also worked with the Victim Assistance Volunteer Program, assisted by the Burlington O.P.P.

She has been the Apprentice Supervisor with the Hamilton S.P.C.A., building the empathy of youth. She has volunteered with Burlington Rotary at Canada’s Largest Ribfest. She worked for Average Joe Sports as a volleyball convener, as well as played volleyball through B.A.S.L and A.C.R.A.

She also played Softball and Ultimate Frisbee. Her children are members of the Burlington Soccer Club, and use many of the wonderful amenities Burlington has to offer.

While President of the Burlington Crime Prevention Committee she became a member of the Citizen Police Academy through Halton Regional Police Service, where good governance and transparency are front and centre.

She received the award for Active Citizenship from Mohawk College, where she attended the Police Foundations program.

Her web site is up and running.

Don’t know much about her views on the significant issues city council faces nor what her core values are – she does place a lot of emphasis on family and neighbourhood.
