White Rock All Candidates Debate for City Council
Last night’s All Candidates Debate for White Rock mayoral hopefuls and city council wannabes (me included) was last night at the Recreation Centre. It was a packed event with over 300 in attendance to listen to us give our last pitches as we enter the final week of the campaign.
90 seconds, the time limit for council candidates to speak, isn’t enough to get into everything I want to do for the city or why I want to help bring about a positive future for White Rock but I hope I gave a good accounting of myself.
I spoke about my background in games development and how working on big multi-million dollar projects with teams around the world required co-operation and open communication. I may be dealing with virtual worlds in my day job, but the care and diligence that we communicate with our partners and customers is key to our success. I’d like to see the same care and diligence shown by the next White Rock City Council by working with partners like the Semiahmoo First Nations, Surrey and our own citizens!
I’m excited by the passion and interest the public is showing in this civic election. White Rock’s future is in good hands with the voters, as long as enough of us make informed decisions and actually get out and vote!
Thanks to everyone who came out to listen to us last night!
