Over the years I continue to enjoy speaking with Marianne Alto on community affairs ranging from homelessness to housing affordability and other issues. I always find Marianne open to conversation from all standpoints and I appreciate that her decisions are thoughtful and well researched. Marianne is sensible, knowledgeable, hard working and able to clearly articulate her wisdom- often provoking deep thought around the Board table. Her actions and values are truly genuine and it is evident she holds the interests of the public first and foremost in her approach. A dedicated community servant, it is a pleasure seeing her on a regular basis supporting businesses, events and causes. She is a valuable asset to Victoria City Council.

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.

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.

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.

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.
