I have known Stephen to be a tireless champion for Don Valley East and its residents for years. Having worked with him in his past roles as a community leader I know Stephen has what it takes to bring effective representation for our community to city hall.
Michael Coteau, Member of Parliament - Don Valley East


I’ve known Stephen Ksiazek for many years both as a neighbour and a community activist. Stephen has tirelessly represented and worked for the residents of Don Valley East for years. As a local small business owner, former Naval Reserve Office, father of three, husband, and President of the Don Mills Residence Inc. (DMRI), he has fought to help the community. Working with City Staff, Developers, and residents he and the DMRI have influenced many of the current and future developments in the neighbourhood. Because of this community focus, business sense, and background in governance, I wholeheartedly support and endorse Stephen Ksiazek to be our new councillor for Don Valley East.
- John Cockerill, President, The Taylor Reach Group, President, Don Mills Resident Association, Former Chair of Better Living Health and Community Service & Thompson House


I have known Stephen for many years. As president of the DMRI he stood up against unbridled developments that lacked proper community engagement and consultation. Stephen has fought for development money to be distributed on an equitable basis and will ensure our arena and community centre gets refurbished.
- Adil Patel, Friends of Flemingdon Park


I have known Stephen to be a hardworking and supportive member of our community for many years. I am certain he has the best intentions for our community at the heart of all he does and I am proud to support his campaign for city council.
- Jackie Wei, Don Mills Collegiate Institute Parents’ Council


Stephen Ksiazek lives in and knows Don Mills. He is aware of the history and benefits of the community and will work to see that future developments make it better for all those who live here.
- Allan McKellar, Wynford-Concorde community leader


Too often the voices and needs of renters in Don Valley East have gone unheard. During this time when rents and evictions at the LTB are skyrocketing, Condo Development and renovictions are also at epidemic levels. Who can WE depend on for Leadership? Stephen Ksiazek stands with renters and is willing to fight for what is right and fair. Steven Ksiazek is proudly endorsed by the Donway Tenants' Association Executive Council.
- The Donway Tenants' Association Executive Council - Jennifer Barclay, Lise Lubera, Lynn Frenette, Michelle Rothman, and Wendy Morrow


As someone who cares deeply about our community, I am confident Stephen is someone I can trust to work in our best interests and serve our most vulnerable residents. I am proud to support him and his campaign to be our next councillor.
- Shenaz Kara Jamal Local Community Organizer


Don Valley East is more than just Don Mills, and Stephen has been working for some time with other elected area officials on issues involving Broadlands and Flemingdon Park. As our Councillor, the Don Valley East community can expect full cooperation regarding the many development issues that are presently threatening the viability of our various sub-communities, from somebody who puts residents first, As a long-standing businessman, we can expect from Stephen a common sense approach to the many financial and ethical questions that our City Council Members face on a day to day basis, putting the needs of the community ahead of personal achievement.
- Terry West, 58-year Don Mills Resident


Stephen has been a devoted and tireless advocate for Don Mills residents since the moment he took over as president of the DMRI. His clear, sensible, and passionate vision for our ward will continue to ensure that it remains a highly desirable place to live and raise a family.”
- Grant McDonald, York Mills Leslie Residents' Association


"I have known Stephen Ksiazek for over twenty years.  He has proven himself to be an upstanding citizen who has always had a desire to serve his community and his Nation. While we joined the Canadian Armed Forces Reserve at virtually the same time and our career paths went in different directions, the fact that at 17 years of age, he was willing to put his life on the line speaks to his values and commitment to those around him. He has subsequently proven himself to be a very capable self-employed businessman in the community. As a result, I fully support his candidacy for the City Councillor for Don Valley East"
