Endorsements

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.

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.

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.
