1. VANCOUVER CAN FOSTER COMPLETE COMMUNITIES
Complete communities are places we can live, work, and play while meeting all our daily needs.
I want to work with you to design a more complete city – one that is happy, healthy and green. With neighbourhoods that are unique, vibrant and well connected and with a diversity of spaces and experiences that bring people together.
2. VANCOUVER CAN CREATE GOOD HOMES FOR ALL
Everyday it gets harder for people and families to stay in Vancouver.
I want to fight for a Vancouver that everyone can afford -- where we have more accessible and diverse housing options, where people can live at all stages of life and where our city regulations and permits are clear, fair and effective in delivering the housing we want.
3. VANCOUVER CAN SUPPORT A BOLDER GREEN ECONOMY
As a local restaurant owner and president of the Mount Pleasant BIA, I have seen firsthand the amazing vision, leadership and actions of our local business community.
I want to work with the business community to support a stronger, greener, local economy -- one that has a diversity of local businesses, that supports a living wage, with good green services and amenities, a range of transportation options, and opportunities for people to innovate, incubate and transform our city for the better.
4. VANCOUVER CAN UNLEASH OUR CREATIVITY
Vancouver’s arts, culture, and heritage are what make us unique. I have worked with Vancouver’s Mural Fest, the Vancouver Art House Society and the City of Reconciliation to protect and celebrate amazing people and places in our city.
I want to continue to preserve and create new places and experiences that honor our past, foster our creativity, strengthen our identity and bring people together.
5. VANCOUVER CAN BE A LEADER IN RESILIENCE
We depend on nature in Vancouver. Our waters and mountains provide us with amazing relaxation opportunities. Our shoreline protects us from storms and sea level rise. Our creeks, streams and wetlands help us manage stormwater. Our trees clean our air and water, cool our city, and capture emissions. And, our birds and bees pollinate our plants.
As a Park Board Commissioner, I have been working hard to protect and expand our parks and green spaces and to improve the quality of our local waters. At City Council, I want to support the resilience of our entire ecosystems. I want to work to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and increase our resilience to climate change, helping residents and local businesses thrive in a post-carbon era.
6. VANCOUVER CAN HAVE FAIR CITY HALL
Our local government is responsible for providing you with essential services, such as clean water, sewer systems, parks and recreation. Our government plans and shapes our communities through the adoption of policies and bylaws.
I want to work to ensure our local government is participatory, transparent, publicly accountable, efficient and fair. I want to represent residents and taxpayers to make decisions together to meet your needs now and in the future.
Would love to hear from you about your priorities.
The best way I can serve Vancouver is with credible, responsible leadership and by listening to you as we co-create a city by and for the people that live here.
