Marianne brings a wonderful blend of intelligence, compassion, practical wisdom and know-how to City Council. Her balanced consideration of the issues, combined with her unique ability to bring people together and ensure that all points of view are heard in a respectful manner, generates action and results. She is deeply committed to fairness, justice and health for all.

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.

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.
