According to Wikipedia, George M. Brown is a former Ottawa City Councillor. He represented Riverside Ward from 1985 to 1994. Career Brown was first elected in the 1985 municipal election, defeating three other candidates with 45% of the vote. Prior to being elected he was a child care worker. In his initial election campaign, he characterized himself as a centrist who combined a dislike of bureaucracy and "big government" with strong support for community-based services such as non-profit organizations, child care services and co-operatives. Early in his first council term, he served on a committee to save the city's bookmobile service after it was threatened by funding cuts, and spearheaded a motion to have city council members' job title formally changed from "alderman" to "councillor". He also supported a then-controversial $5,000 grant to Gays of Ottawa, the city's primary organization for LGBT people, on the grounds that denying the grant because of the group's sexual orientation would be discriminatory.
