For Pitt Meadows council

• Name: Tracy Miyashita.

• Residence: Pitt Meadows.

• Occupation/education: I currently work as a project manager for the Division of Family Practice. I also operate a safety training home-based business. I have a Bachelor of General Studies from SFU and a Bachelor of Leadership and Management from BCIT.

• Volunteer work: P. I volunteer for Pitt Meadows Day, organizing the annual salmon and chicken BBQ; Canada Day Run; and also sit on the community council for the Salvation Army Caring Place.

• Who do you support for mayor: I think all of the candidates running for mayor have different strengths that they bring to the table. I would be happy to work with any of the candidates who are running for both the mayor’s seat and council.




Question: Please provide an example of what you have done that qualifies you for council?

Answer: I have been honored to serve Pitt Meadows for the past two terms on council. My career path has focused on health and recreation and includes experience with non-profit, municipal and provincial government, small business, as well as First Nations. I have had the opportunity to work with various boards and community groups,




Q: Who is funding your campaign?

A: At the time of this submission, I am funding my own campaign.



Q: What makes you stand out from other candidates?

A: I think we all bring something unique to the table. As a single mother, my child is still going through the school system and I feel that I can identify with and represent the perspective of families with younger children. I also understand the challenges many of us face financially and that keeping taxes low is important to many of us in the community.



Q: How do you see your city developing in the next 10 years?

A: I think we will continue to see more densification for residential development and commercial/business development that will provide local jobs, balanced taxation and a stronger economy. With this growth, traffic issues will continue to grow so we need to continue to work with the province and understand regional impacts.



Q: What will be your top priority if elected to Pitt Meadows council?

A: We need to focus on a strong economy in Pitt Meadows and support development that provides local jobs, support strategies that attract and keep local businesses going, and commit to a balanced financial plan that is beyond just thinking about today, but puts us in a strong position in the future as well.
