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.......

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.

    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

Marianne displays a unique combination of progressive values backed up with the effectiveness and intelligence needed to achieve positive change. I believe that we should return her to office as a Victoria City Councillor.
