As Member of Parliament for Esquimalt-Saanich-Sooke, I’ve seen first-hand the positive difference Marianne Alto makes as a Victoria City councillor and CRD director. Her experience, skills, and abilities in so many areas mean she works across sectors problem solving, to the benefit of residents in Victoria and across the region. I’ve worked alongside Marianne for 25 years as she has challenged convention and explored solutions that rely on knowing strategies, systems and processes but also understanding that often the best solutions are found ‘outside the box’. Marianne is a superb listener, tireless, determined, open-minded. She spends time looking at all sides of an issue, working closely with often competing interests, then using her extensive consultation and collaboration skills to find a way forward. When she says she’ll do something, it gets done. I’m pleased to support Marianne Alto for re-election to Victoria City council and the CRD, and urge voters to do the same.

Because I am preparing to vote for the first time in a Victoria municipal election, I was glad to attend a small citizens’ meeting where I could hear Marianne Alto describe how she has done the work of a Victoria City Councillor and how she proposes to continue that work. What a pleasure it was to see civility embodied so thoroughly in a public figure! Marianne impressed me with her automatic inclination to “rise above”—a quality of statesmanship crucial to a Deputy Mayor. Her feet are on the ground, too. She displays a practical knowledge of what city government can achieve within the limits of its powers and income.......

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.

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.

I first met Marianne Alto some years ago because of our shared interest in more effective responses to the ongoing housing crisis in Victoria. I have long believed that it is at the city level of government where the rubber meets the road. Whether it is in homelessness, gentrification, densification, the opioid crisis on our streets, transportation infrastructure, security, climate change, public space or so many other issues, these difficult problems are intensified in our cities and they have a profound effect on competing rights. Our city councillors are on the front lines of all of these issues and critical decisions. We need cool heads in city hall who can work with limited resources, with communities, and with senior levels of government while keeping their eyes on opportunities and solutions. Marianne has that gift which is why I wholeheartedly endorse her run for another term on Victoria City Council.
