I would like to thank the voters of Oak Bay for turning out in large numbers to support its candidates—56% of you! That’s an all-time high for Oak Bay. You can view the detailed results of each candidate here.
I would like to particularly acknowledge the positive energies of all the candidates; win or lose, your commitment cannot be underestimated.
And of course I would like to thank those who listened to me, and generally put up with me as I haunted the corners of our wonderful municipality speaking to anyone who would listen, and listening to anyone who would speak.
I would also like to acknowledge and thank my very smart team for guiding, supporting, and encouraging me. You know who you are.
And finally, standing for political office can be daunting—we put ourselves on the line in many ways. I am so deeply grateful to my loving family and friends who give me the reason and inspiration to do this work.
Our community made it clear to me that they want to be uniquely positioned as a leader and a model to other communities that want to increase housing options, protect their environment and create a healthy, sustainable lifestyle—all of this managed in a fiscally responsible manner.
I look forward to serving this wonderful community.
