    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

Victoria needs balanced representation on Council, so we can continue to grow and change with the times, while keeping our social obligations and the needs of civil society in view. Marianne has provided that representation over the past 7 years and I’m proud to support her for another term on Council.

Our first connection with Marianne was over 20 years ago through Victoria's Russian Twin City - Khabarovsk.  She has a great understanding of various cultures and was able to make a big difference in the City's relationship with the twin city. This continues today through her work in Reconciliation with our First Nation's neighbours. Through her guidance, we have watched her two sons grow up to be great assets to her and fine citizens. She always encouraged them to expand their horizons in many varied ways. In her years as Councillor for the City, she has always shown a wonderful ability to calmly assess the many varied aspects presented to the Council and come up with a thoughtful and measured response. Victoria has many current and future challenges and the City is fortunate to have someone of Marianne's background at the Council table.

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.
