Carol Day has served as a Richmond councillor for 8 years and was a school trustee for 3 years. Re-elected by wide margins on a progressive, centrist platform, Carol has brought a new approach to council, listening to Richmond residents’ concerns and tirelessly seeking solutions.
Her top priority is finding ways of making home ownership and rental housing more affordable for working families. This includes advocating for revised zoning bylaws to allow for gentle density that enhances neighbourhoods.
She is committed to protecting Richmond’s environment and has volunteered for over 30 years as chair of VAPOR, she worked hard to try and stop the YVR jet fuel pipeline, marine terminal and 80-million-liter tank farm, a major risk to the Fraser River. She also worked to save the Garden City Lands. She understands business having owned a sign company in Richmond for 43 years and she’s voted against unnecessary tax increases.
