Endorsements

I endorse Marianne Alto for city councillor in the October municipal election. I’ve lived in Victoria for about 11 years now. I love it here and this city has been very good to me. As a councillor, Marianne has engaged with many groups in the community, from First Nations folks to those in the arts. Much of her work is behind the scenes where she nurtures careful conversations and the dreams of new possibilities. She is always cheerful and pragmatic – a balance few achieve. A few can do it with the homeless and unsheltered on our streets and some can do it with business people. She does it with both and all the rest of us. It makes it possible to be take her seriously and to trust that she is listening and thinking ahead. We are lucky to have her working for our good.

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.

I am happy to add my name to those who support Marianne. Marianne is dedicated to a community in a way which epitomizes all of my values – compassionate, responsible, both financially and intrinsically, and totally involved. She is someone upon whom you can count to do the things that matter to Victoria’s citizens. Marianne cares and acts upon that caring in thoughtful and responsible ways at the council table. Thank you, Marianne, for once again being willing to serve our community.

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.
