Achievements on City Council

Here are some initiatives Angela worked hard to bring forward in this past term, with support from her Council colleagues and staff (and what people are saying about them):

“I was immediately taken with Angela’s care and concern for all the residents in the City of North Vancouver, especially advocating for the City’s most vulnerable population.”

Kate Galicz – Cultural Administrator; Vice Chair, Social Planning Advisory Committee; Board Member, North Van Arts Council, North Vancouver Resident

“…[Angela and I] have worked on many initiatives and projects during this time including childcare, playgrounds, safe routes to school…”

Kulvir Mann – North Vancouver Resident

“Unable to realize alternative accommodation after trying for many years… Angela encouraged me in a situation I had known nothing about, namely that new developers are required to have a few spaces at a lower price for tenants they were displacing. Angela went to bat for me with one of the leasing agents for the developer company. They decided they were able to accept me at a price I could manage. I am extremely grateful, and feel Angela is something special in a City Councillor.”

Suzanne – Senior & North Vancouver Resident for 35 years

“…[Angela] has gone out of her way to ensure that the residents of North Vancouver are taken care of, more so now as the cost of living in this beautiful city is sky rocketing. She continues to understand the residents and their needs…”

Vanja Bezdrob – Licensed Practical Nurse & North Vancouver Resident

“As a former PAC Executive for Westview Elementary, I am really grateful that we have the support of the City, with the playground Grant, because it gave us the opportunity to make our school’s play area, inclusive to everyone in our community.”

Maria Haslbeck – Former PAC Executive, Westview Elementary School & North Vancouver Resident

“… [Angela] raises issues and topics that are focused to provide positive impact to the families and citizens in The City of North Vancouver and more so for the community at large. For example, Angela brought forward a motion to Council advocating for much needed, after school care programming. This demonstrated her deep understanding and connection to her community.”

Franci Stratton – Chief Operating Officer, Nemetz (S/A) & Associations Ltd. & North Vancouver Resident

“… Angela understands the benefits of culture and how supporting culture creates deeper ties to the community as well as a better understanding of each other…”
