RE-ELECT CAIRINE GREEN
For Oak Bay Council
“Strong local government should be a working partnership with the community it serves.” (Cairine Green, B.A., M.Ed.)
A community is strong when its members are connected and included.
While the past two years have tested our strength as a community and our ability to engage together, we are RESILIENT. And at the heart of our resilience are the people, families, volunteers, services, programs, groups, organizations, small businesses, and countless others who define and support our quality of life in Oak Bay. A strong and resilient community like Oak Bay needs equally strong leadership from its Council. I’m running again to provide that leadership on such important issues as housing, climate change, active transportation, infrastructure, environmental protection, and relationship-building with local Indigenous communities through Indigenous Truth and Reconciliation.
