Bio

Andrew J. Reeve, 22, was born and raised in Victoria. He became interested in local politics after seeing the issues Victoria faced while working at Statistics Canada. He has served on several local boards including Amalgamation Yes. Andrew graduated from the University of Victoria having studied Political Science and History. In 2013, Reeve became a senior fellow at the Canadian Jewish Political Affairs Committee and served as a political pundit and commentator for CBC Radio’s coverage of the provincial election. That same year, he also became the second youngest Liberal Party of Canada riding president in the country and co-founded Vancouver Island Youth Civic Engagement, a non-partisan organization that strives to promote political participation to young people.

 

Why should I vote for you?

The next generation should have a seat at city council, because we cannot afford to be the “leaders of tomorrow.” We must be the leaders of today. Victoria needs councillors with that long-term personal investment and passionate drive to build a better today for a more prosperous future.

 

Your main goal if elected?

My main goal is to bring fiscal responsibility and accountability back to Victoria and to tackle the serious issues facing our city. Council focusing on lowering speed limits and banning skateboards while we have a $500 million infrastructure deficit and a 10 per cent commercial vacancy rate downtown is embarrassing and irresponsible.
