Please view and share my historical campaign journey in Port Coquitlam. Metro Vancouver
May Day Parade | Port Coquitlam
The 95th Port Coquitlam May Day Festival
The City of Port Coquitlam has been celebrating May Day since 1923. The community’s modern-day celebrate offers more than a week of fun-filled activities and events including May Pole dancing, the May Day Rotary Parade followed by the May Day Block Party with food trucks, artisans, outdoor activities and BizAlley, and a Mother’s Day Picnic the next day.
Our walk at the parade was to represent community, diversity, unity and connection using puzzle pieces; for without this elements no community can progress successful in this day and age.
raising funds from the community
I recently hosted my first fundraiser, with the amount of seasoned politicians I am running against it was heartening to see the massive support I got from those who attended from the metro Vancouver area and the Tri-cities in particular. I especially thank all the local volunteers from the Port Coquitlam municipality who showed up in large numbers to show their support for my campaign. As the municipal campaign progress, I hope to see more of you and listen to what you have to say about the vision of the Port Coquitlam of the future.
running for municipal office
Back in May I officially announced my candidacy for Port Coquitlam City Council. This Metro Vancouver City has been my home through my college years at Douglas College , even through my practicum while traveling back and forth between the rural communities in Uganda and working within this community volunteering.My hope is my experience in working in diverse communities in the Lower Mainland and specifically families in crises will be an added asset at the City Council, especially given the current challenges in addressing housing, transit, homelessness, job creation and business development in the Metro Vancouver area
