I am pleased to share the video recording of Oak Bay Council’s Inaugural Meeting, November 7, 2022. It was a meaningful night shared with family and friends. Thanks to everyone who attended and I look forward to working together with this Council over the next four years. We have a lot to do, to fulfill the trust and the high hopes and expectations our community has bestowed in us.
My primary goal for my work, apart from roles in policy and decision-making, is to proactively nurture and support a culture of tolerance, acceptance and respect as integral community values, where Oak Bay continues to embrace difference and works courageously, to defeat current and troubling incidents of intolerance and discrimination in the broader Greater Victoria region. These values should underpin the work of local governments everywhere.
