Q1. What have you personally achieved, or what initiative have you personally led in recent years that qualifies you to be elected or re-elected as a Maple Ridge councillor?

1. I was assigned to represent Maple Ridge at the Metro Vancouver table from 2006 – 2008, a position that is usually held by the mayor.

In recognition of the strong working relationships that I developed and to maintain continuity, Mayor Ernie Daykin continued my appointment for 2009.  In 2010, I was appointed vice-chair of the Metro Vancouver Regional Planning Committee.

The two pieces of work that I led on behalf of council at the Metro Vancouver table were the Official Community Plan amendments and the newly adopted Regional Growth Strategy.

Q2. Provide two examples of council’s actions over the past three years and explain why or why not you support them.

2.  Town Centre Initiatives and the Albion plan.

I support densification in the town centre and all of the town centre initiatives, such as the downtown enhancement project, the purchase of the three-acre parcel, the town centre investment program, and the clean-up of vacant/derelict properties. I also support the partnership between the District and the Business Improvement Association. This partnership realized a number of renovations and building facade improvements in our downtown.

The most frequent issue raised during the last election was a desire for more shopping options, specifically in the Albion flats. I firmly support enabling a broader range of shopping options for our citizens. I fulfilled the commitment that I made during the last election and I supported the draft Albion flats concept plan that was sent to the ALC for comment.

Q3. Do you support the 13-per-cent increase (over three years) in councillor’s salaries approved last summer? Why or why not? Explain what you would do if elected.

3. I believe that the council remuneration should be based on the cost of living and if re-elected I would vote to see the current remuneration policy changed. I do support the outgoing council voting on what if any increase should occur for the incoming council.  When this matter was discussed by the current council, I considered the role and work of a councillor and not what I would do personally.
