Councillor Abdella Assaff is a life-long resident of Western Shore. His parents came to the area as immigrants and raised a family. Abdella was born in Western Shore, and his family and roots are in the community.He has operated successful businesses in the Municipality for over 30 years; first in his father's clothing store in Western Shore, and for the last 25 years in Chester Shore Mall. Abdella has served as treasurer for both the Western Shore and District Fire Department and Fire Commission. He and his wife Annette, with the unbelievable help of the Western Shore and District Fire Department, established a scholarship fund over 10 years ago, in memory of his son Chad. This fund was available to students from our District attending Forest Heights High School to further their education. Both Abdella and Annette are proud of this accomplishment. In recent years applications for the scholarship slowed, so they donated the remaining funds to the Fire Department.
Abdella has many years of volunteer community service, and he is always ready to give a helping hand.
