About Me

Scott Thompson


I have resided in the Ward 2 Village Core area for the past 18 years. I am married with two adult children currently pursuing their post secondary education. My wife, Lillian, and I chose Richmond Hill to raise our family due to the wide collection of activities, events and facilities that residents get to enjoy all year round. Something we want future generations to be able to enjoy as well.
