My Ideas

There is greatness bubbling just beneath the surface of Victoria. We are fortunate to live in this remarkable place. Yet, during my term on Council I've come to see that 'business as usual' is no longer good enough to keep up with the needs of a changing and growing city. City Hall could be doing much more to understand the problems and their causes, and commit to solving them. I'll roll up my sleeves and make City Hall a place that listens to, and works, for you. This will lead the way to a city of opportunities.

Lead with Courage  
As your mayor I will:

  • - Listen. I am open to new ideas and will meet differing views with a spirit of collaboration.
  • - Make evidence-based decisions and encourage innovation, even in the face of "We've never done it that way before."
  • - Take decisive action on a bold vision to move Victoria forward for generations to come.
  • - Lead with a vision, and with a plan!

A City Hall that Works
As your mayor I will:

  • - Make better decisions on spending and infrastructure projects to ensure better outcomes and accountability.
  • - Support business by replacing layers of red-tape with common sense.
  • - Provide simple, timely processes to move citizens' ideas from talk to action.
  • - Communicate city business in a clear, transparent and understandable manner.

A Vibrant Downtown & Thriving Neighbourhoods
As your mayor I will work to make Victoria's Downtown and Neighbourhoods:

  • - The heart and lifeblood of the city.
  • - Destinations and great places to live.
  • - People-centred with public spaces that are alive.
  • - Centres of economic activity and prosperity.

A City of Opportunities
As your mayor I will:

  • - Foster and support local innovation and local talent.
  • - Attract and support businesses by creating an 'open for business' spirit at City Hall.
  • - Build strong relationships with neighbouring communities and other levels of government.
  • - Help to make the city affordable and work to improve the lives of its most vulnerable citizens.
