My name is Jason Riley and I wanted to tell the voters of Cornwall a little bit more about myself. I am a lifelong resident of Cornwall, Ontario. I am a graduated of St Joseph’s Catholic Secondary School and St Lawrence College, Cornwall Campus. I am a husband father and grandfather.
I started my professional career working at a local computer store where I repaired computers for local businesses and consumers. From there I moved on to work in the IT department at the Akwesasne Mohawk Casino. I was fortunate enough to learn a little about the Mohawk culture while working there.
I have spent the past 15 years working for a software brand at IBM. Where I manage some of our largest clients. I am very fortunate, that I have been working from home for the past 13 years. Working from home on a daily basis allows me to be in the community, it allows me to be accessible and I feel that this will allow me to be a great city councillor.
My parents raise me with a sense of community and giving back. They taught me how rewarding volunteering can be. I have been volunteering in our community since I was a child with a variety of organizations, non-profits, and youth sporting clubs. Most recently I have served on the Board of Directors for the Seaway Valley Soccer Club as their Secretary and Treasurer for the past 5 years.
On this site you will see other short videos outlining my positions on a variety of topics. If you have a question that you would like to ask me then please feel free to contact me through this site. I would be more than happy to help answer any questions that you might have.
I hope that when you go to vote in our municipal election on October 24 that you consider voting for me.
