Jack Trovato hails from Argentina, having immigrated to Canada with his family as a small child. A proud Richmond resident for over 40 years, Jack grew up in Richmond and raised his daughter here.

Mr. Trovato is an award-winning retired teacher, school administrator, adjunct professor in the Teacher Education Office in the Faculty of Education at the University of British Columbia, and a well-respected community advocate.

Mr. Trovato has spearheaded the petition campaign for the restriction of house sizes on farmland, the petition to approve the Acute Care Tower at Richmond Hospital, and the petition calling on the BC government to initiate an independent public inquiry into money laundering, drug trafficking, and profiteering in our real estate economy.

Jack has advocated on behalf of our community at all three levels of government and was recently the NDP candidate in the 2021 federal election.

Reason for running

submitted by the candidate or their team
I am committed to ushering in a new age of open, honest, transparent, and accountable civic government where the community's common good and best interests are prioritized.

And, I will do so by constantly challenging the status quo of our current economic, social, and political policies and establishing new ones that serve all Richmondites.

I support:
□ Developing a variety of affordable housing options for Richmond residents;
□ Building public trust through improved transparency;
□ Implementing a comprehensive environmental action plan, and;
□ Supporting local business, civic infrastructure, and improving community safety.

This campaign is about change. The people of Richmond are ready for a Bold Vision and a Better Richmond. And, the only way to bring about that change is to vote for the RCA in the upcoming civic election.

Politics isn't just about elections – it's about standing up for a greener, more livable, and sustainable Richmond every day.

"While Richmond is a great place to raise a family, many residents find it increasingly challenging to afford a place to call home. The time for incremental change is over regarding affordable housing, a bold environmental action plan, and responsive leadership. The status quo must go!"
