Election 2014: Council candidate John Luton

City of Victoria: Luton, John -- council candidate

Bio

John, 60, served on council from 2008 to 2011, and has worked in the community on issues related to cycling, walking and community design. He works as a transportation consultant and lives in Fairfield with his wife and two children.

 

Why should I vote for you?

I have experience and a record on council that shows I can work collaboratively on diverse issues to tackle the jew challenges facing Victoria. We tackled homelessness, got started on key infrastructure needs and put the city back to work while balancing the need for new development against protecting our cherished heritage.

 

Your main goal if elected?

I want our city to get back to work on homelessness and affordability, on our infrastructure deficit, on plans for neighbourhoods and active transportation. We need balanced development to attract new business, protect traditional industries and share the load of financing our services and capital needs equitably.
