Endorsements

For 14 years I’ve been witness to Marianne Alto’s honesty and dedication to our community. She has a fine legal mind, history of human rights work, and long experience crafting policy and legislation. She follows through on her promises and gets stuff done. I’ve watched Marianne handle difficult public consultations and chair impossible meetings with warmth and a steady hand. People feel heard and grounded in her presence. Marianne does her homework. She thinks hard and in detail about tough issues. Her kindness, humour and obvious enjoyment of the challenges of governing are the icing on the cake. I sincerely hope Victoria will support her campaign and be lucky enough to have her on Council for another term.

Our first connection with Marianne was over 20 years ago through Victoria's Russian Twin City - Khabarovsk.  She has a great understanding of various cultures and was able to make a big difference in the City's relationship with the twin city. This continues today through her work in Reconciliation with our First Nation's neighbours. Through her guidance, we have watched her two sons grow up to be great assets to her and fine citizens. She always encouraged them to expand their horizons in many varied ways. In her years as Councillor for the City, she has always shown a wonderful ability to calmly assess the many varied aspects presented to the Council and come up with a thoughtful and measured response. Victoria has many current and future challenges and the City is fortunate to have someone of Marianne's background at the Council table.

I’m honoured to support Marianne Alto’s continued presence as a Victoria City Councillor and CRD director. Since her initial election in 2010, Marianne Alto has championed and supported progressive and pragmatic policy on issues including housing, poverty, governance, open data and more. Marianne Alto is an experienced, strong and consistent supporter of Victoria becoming a healthier, safer and happier city through the championing of walking, cycling and public transit. Marianne Alto is very good at communicating on complex policy issues in accessible language to a variety of audiences and is able to bridge gaps between government, business and all her constituents. Marianne uses a collaborative and consensus-based approach to bring people together to solve problems regardless of ideology. Marianne Alto continues to be an excellent councillor and CRD director and I am glad she represents me in Victoria.

Victoria needs balanced representation on Council, so we can continue to grow and change with the times, while keeping our social obligations and the needs of civil society in view. Marianne has provided that representation over the past 7 years and I’m proud to support her for another term on Council.

I would like to provide an endorsement for Marianne Alto and her campaign for re-election to Victoria City Council. I have had the pleasure of knowing Marianne for several years and have sat at many of the same community tables with Marianne. She is deeply involved in local committees, action teams and community engagement opportunities. Marianne has a track record that shows she is committed to the residents of Victoria and an advocate for our community. Victoria is a wonderful place to live, work and play and strong leaders, like Marianne, are key to keeping it that way.
