Divisive leadership in municipal politics does not work. History shows when leadership does not move forward aligned they are required to work much harder and are slower to get results. I believe we can create a more livable, inclusive city where people feel heard, basic services are running smoothly and the essential needs of the residents in all demographics are met.
In order to achieve this, we need leadership at City Hall to be a bridge to open communication, to make choices through an intersectional lens and most important we need to value harmony as a strength, not a weakness. I believe I can play a pivotal role in moving us towards a powerful state of harmony.
Vancouver has given me and my family a lot – as my children are getting older I see putting my name forward as the best way to give back to a city that has been our home and enabled my family to grow.
