Candidates for City Council
WHAT OUR COUNCIL CANDIDATES PLEDGE TO RICHMOND
Red Light: Stop runaway spending... Local government taxes have increased at far above the inflation rate, we must find a way to slow this, it is not sustainable. Our value for dollar external review will help identify ways to do this.
Yellow light: Get development right… Our neighbourhoods are under attack... they are being changed in ways that threaten the social fabric of our community.
Green Light: Keep traffic moving… The City has opposed the replacement of the Massey Tunnel, virtually stranding 25,000 Richmond drivers and having them Idling and spewing toxic gases every day, not to mention the time lost with family and the cost to the economy.
Re-Elect Ken Johnston
"I am proud to be a member of the team that will bring true
harmony to the City of Richmond. We will work collaboratively to bring
balance and solutions to the concerns expressed by Richmond residents.
We are the team that will lead Richmond to a brighter future."
Re-Elect Chak Au
"The Richmond Community Coalition is the family I am most
comfortable with. They allow us to be individuals. We share opinions
and bring different perspectives to the table for the common good of the
whole community. In a diverse community like ours it is what RCCA
strives for. After all Harmony and Balance is what we all strive for."
"We are all so fortunate to be living in the City of
Richmond. A Diverse and growing city that is home to many citizens with
rich ethnic backgrounds. My time as a School Trustee has allowed me to
Give back to my city. Now I want to do even more by being a part of an
RCCA council. Giving back to Richmond is my labor of love"
“We can only achieve success by having dialogue with each
other. Residents need to be part of the dialogue that will create
vibrant communities within Richmond and build a bridge between those
communities and local government.”
"I am passionate about working on a gentle density plan for
our city, where we can provide affordable options for families and young
professionals who are leaving Richmond for other regions."
