If elected, what steps would you take to improve housing affordability in PoCo?
A balanced blend of housing options makes for a vibrant community. We should ensure housing options exist for renters, owners, differing income levels and social needs. All families — whether one person or 20 people — and all generations should be able to call Port Coquitlam home.
What do you hope to accomplish as a city councillor?
I support balanced, diverse growth. With due diligence and strong oversight, managed development can enhance our vibrant community. I value our green space: our trees, parks, ravines and abundant trails. I want to keep PoCo a city of choice — where people choose to live, work or play.
What do you believe is the biggest issue facing PoCo?
How do we continue to develop our city to meet community needs, within the natural barriers of three rivers and a mountain?
Would you change the mayor and council’s pay and why?
To be honest, I can’t provide a fair answer until I review a compensation package survey for similar-sized cities and councils.
