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.

It Is with great pleasure that I recommend re-electing Marianne to Victoria City Council. I have worked with her over the past five years on the Vic High multi-purpose athletic facility renewal and renovation project and have first hand knowledge of the skills and abilities she possesses to get things done. Through her dedication and leadership, the Vic High Alumni Association, Board of Education, and Bays United Football Club have partnered to raise funds for this project that will benefit students and the community as one of the key components is artificial turf and lights to allow non-school use during the winter months and at night. With matching funds from the City, championed by Marianne, our fund-raising efforts are approaching $600,00.00. Marianne’s commitment to working with all the partners in the greater community has been unwavering and I look forward to continuing our efforts to bring this win-win project to completion.

Over the years I continue to enjoy speaking with Marianne Alto on community affairs ranging from homelessness to housing affordability and other issues. I always find Marianne open to conversation from all standpoints and I appreciate that her decisions are thoughtful and well researched. Marianne is sensible, knowledgeable, hard working and able to clearly articulate her wisdom- often provoking deep thought around the Board table. Her actions and values are truly genuine and it is evident she holds the interests of the public first and foremost in her approach. A dedicated community servant, it is a pleasure seeing her on a regular basis supporting businesses, events and causes. She is a valuable asset to Victoria City Council.
