Announcement on Mayoral Run

Posted in:

As many of you know I have been asked to consider running to be the Mayor of Vancouver, and I have given it much thought.

Thank you to the many folks across Vancouver who have given me advice, support, and shared your thoughts both for and against over the last while.

I’ve come to a decision.

I ran to be the MLA for my neighbours in the West End and Coal Harbour because I wanted to change our province for the better.

I have so much that I want to get done …for you, the community that elected me as your MLA in our new government that I realized I can’t stop now. I also know

I cannot and will not give up the precious time I have with my son, and husband to run for Mayor. It’s just too important.

Walking through the park holding my son as he cooed at the birds it just hit me, I can’t leave this. I can and am making changes now with our new government that my neighbours have dreamed about for years, and don’t need to run for Mayor to do that.

I am incredibly humbled by those who expressed their support for me, and thankful.

I look forward to continuing my work with Premier Horgan and our team, and continuing to stand up, and work hard for my neighbours in the West End and Coal Harbour as your MLA.

It’s a privilege and honour to serve you.

Thanks again.
