Reason for running

submitted by the candidate or their team
My reasons for running: Strengthening trust, accountability, and openness through collaboration and partnership in city hall. To be the voice for people who have been muted, to continue to build strong partnership with my community and I will stand behind YOU.

Like many Vancouverites I got tired of empty promises from politicians that tell us what we want to hear, but years after being elected there's a lack of accountability and performance. This city belongs to ALL, not just a playground for the rich.
