Josh Morgan Family Image

MY FAMILY

My family and I live here in London, Ontario. My wife Melanie and I were married here and we decided that this was the perfect place for us to start a family. Today we have four children (Ainsley, McKenna, Max and Archer) and we all love our vibrant and active community of friends and neighbours. We are proud to call this city our home. Melanie has been a high school teacher, Vice Principal, and Principal here in London for almost 20 years. We couldn’t imagine being a part of any other community because London has so much to offer. We want our kids to grow up in a city, province, and country that realizes its great potential and the work ahead is to ensure a sustainable future for all young Londoners & young Canadians. I thank my family for their support and encouragement. I also thank our friends, neighbours, and all those Londoners who have encouraged me to continue to serve and represent them.
