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.
