Bio

Jeremy is running for Victoria city council to help build a more affordable, sustainable and vibrant city. Through his work as a founder of the Victorious Voices Youth Arts Festival and the City of Victoria’s Youth Poet Laureate program, Jeremy has created platforms for youth to express themselves and to engage in the community. For the past four and a half years, Jeremy has worked for a respected health charity in a community development role, building relationships and organizing events. Jeremy has also been a strong advocate for safe, accessible transportation in his role as a board member for the Greater Victoria Cycling Coalition. Despite this community involvement, Jeremy is most well known for using his performance poetry to speak out about important issues. Last year he made headlines around the world when one of his poems advocating against gender violence went viral online. Jeremy is drawn to local politics because of the concrete nature of the decisions that need to be made and the a deep love for the City of Victoria.

 

Why should I vote for you?

I have dedicated myself to building communities, to providing platforms for young people to express themselves and to speaking out about important local issues. I have the experience and energy to be effective on city council. I will be a strong voice for affordable living, alternative transportation and vibrant neighbourhoods.

 

Your main goal if elected?

I will work to keep Victoria affordable for everyone. You shouldn’t have to move to the western communities to raise your family. There are simple and effective changes that we can make to increase our rental and affordable housing that will help everyone to find a home that they can afford.
