March 12, 2012

KINGSTON, ON – The Alma Mater Society (AMS) congratulates Karen and Geoff Heminsley, the winners of the 2011-2012 University District Golden Key recognizing the best landlord in Kingston as nominated by students.

“Of the 16 nominations, Karen and Geoff Heminsley were nominated by 3 different groups of their tenants,” says AMS Municipal Affairs Commissioner David Sinkinson. “Their extraordinary approach as landlords, coupled with the extremely high quality of their properties makes them the obvious choice as winners of the University District Golden Key for 2011-2012.”

The University District Golden Key Award will be presented to Karen and Geoff Heminsley by Mayor Mark Gerretsen on March 15th at 2:30pm in Common Ground Coffee House (second floor Queen’s Centre).

“The University District Golden Key recognises the best landlord in Kingston both in terms of their relationship with their tenants and in the quality of the properties they rent to students,” says Sinkinson. “We are thrilled to recognise the great landlords and encourage this kind of high quality service in the University District.”
