Why did you decide to run?
As a longtime resident who has lived in Richmond Hill for 12 years, I am deeply concerned about some decisions made by the current council that have failed to meet the expectations of our communities, particularly for the overdeveloped housing plans over the years, leading to many complaints and concerns from residents. In recent years, the City of Richmond Hill has faced increased traffic problems, overdeveloped housing issues, community safety and security issues, and economic development challenges.
How will you embrace and champion diversity in this role?
I will listen to the voices of all residents and present the common public interest of different communities and ensure inclusion and equity for all residents of Ward 4.
What are your three main problems?
Bring respect to residents and professionalism to Council
Fight for balanced housing instead of high-density skyscrapers
Improve the quality of staff service for residents and optimize the services you get for your taxes
If elected, what do you expect to accomplish in your first 100 days?
Neighborhood safety issues, including overspeeding issues, neighborhood watch program, balanced housing instead of high-density skyscrapers.
