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.

    Marianne is the type of city councillor Victoria needs. She’s not afraid to challenge the conventional wisdom and she doesn’t get caught up in ideology. She listens to people and is able to consider complex problems from various perspectives before making up her mind. Her clear thinking has served Victoria well on the range of very challenging issues facing the City. I’ve watched her work effectively with everyone from business organizations to neighbourhood groups. If you want thoughtful, principled representation at City Council, support Marianne

In my experiences working with Marianne around the topic of affordable home ownership in the Region, I found her to be approachable, sensible, knowledgeable and extremely committed to positive change in the community. It is obvious that she is sincere in her comments and desire to see Victoria be an even better community in which to live. She is so willing to make time to talk with stakeholders in the community on a variety of issues. I believe she is a valuable asset to Victoria City Council and she has my vote as a homeowner in Victoria.
