Councillor Sandra Yeung Racco has worked tirelessly on behalf of her constituents for more than 15 years. She was first elected in 2003 and is currently the longest serving Asian female politician in the City of Vaughan and York Region. Now entering into her fifth term on Vaughan Council, she has been a driving force in bringing new parks, community centres, and vital services to her constituents. Additionally, she has played an integral role in arts and cultural initiatives, addressing the needs of youth and seniors, advocating for strong comprehensive development of the Vaughan Metropolitan Centre, and collaborating with various levels of government to get much needed infrastructure in place, including the opening of the subway into the City of Vaughan in December 2017.
Sandra was born in Hong Kong, raised in Ontario, studied music and obtained her A.R.C.T. at the Royal Conservatory of Music and graduated from the University of Toronto with a Bachelor of Music Education degree. After graduation, the Councillor ventured into the world of international business relations, developing an understanding of the needs of global business communities. However, it was her volunteer work with local non-profit community organizations and her experience working with diverse boards and committees across Toronto and Vaughan that endowed her with a nuanced appreciation of the fabric of the local community.
Sandra’s background and experience blend business relations, the arts, family, and a complex understanding of the needs and priorities of her constituents. She is committed to delivering results beyond the level of expectation and to building a vibrant community in Ward 4.
