The fundamental question before us in this election will be whether our leaders should cater to the short term needs of our existing residents, or take the longer view of their community. For decades, successive councils in West Vancouver indulged in the belief that you can stave off change simply by saying no to it.”
As much as we all love this community, few would deny that we face significant challenges in the years ahead. Growing traffic congestion, a worrisome climate emergency, the lack of diversity in our housing stock, and a crisis in the way that we care for our elderly are just some of the issues that must be addressed in the next four years. We have made substantial progress, but there is much work still to be done.
West Vancouver demands a brighter future, led by a mayor prepared to embrace change and determined to find solutions to the complex issues that all communities face today. It is sometimes said that if you are standing still, you are falling behind. My campaign is focused on the future of this wonderful community, and I’m asking for your support in helping to ensure that we keep moving forward.
