A few weeks ago, it was announced that I was going to Chair a new and exciting grassroots political organization in New Westminster. As part of our community and neighbourhood engagement strategy, the Coalition has launched a new online video intended to spark a conversation. The video will be promoted on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter.
As many of you know, last summer I started an online petition aimed at accelerating the construction of a 3rd arena in New Westminster. Within only a few weeks, I was able to secure my goal of 500 signatures. Using social media is a great way to get people active in civic government and the upcoming 2018 election.
The new video provides residents with a quick overview of some great reasons to live in New Westminster…and also highlights some of the challenges we face as a community. It is the first of many videos to be launched over the coming months. I’m encouraging you to have a look and be sure to spread it far and wide!
Speaking of the arena, I have just received a formal invitation from the City of New Westminster Recreation Parks and Recreation Committee to present my case for why we need this new investment. I’m hoping that part of the delegation will also include representatives from both minor lacrosse and hockey associations. I’ll keep you posted once I’ve made the presentation.
