Bio

Margaret has been an executive leader in the tourism and retail industry for over 25 years. In 2003, she deployed her visionary business plan and worked tirelessly to lead the transformation of the Hotel Douglas, to the Hotel Rialto. The Hotel Rialto now contributes to the appeal and allure of downtown Victoria and will do so for years to come.

Margaret cares deeply about her community, is not afraid to get involved and brings her strong business acumen and understanding of regional perspectives to her role on city council. She has a proven track record as the person to whom difficult and unconventional projects and negotiations are assigned and completed and is valued for her tireless work ethic and sage counsel.

Margaret was the task force chair of the Regional & Economic Development Committee and facilitated three separate communities coming together for a common goal of economic growth.

Margaret has a passion for bringing challenging infrastructure projects from conception to completion, working with architects, engineers, construction managers, interior designers, bank lenders, overseeing budgets, preparing cost completion reports and managing purchasing.

Margaret is the person you call when you want a job done — and done well.

 

Why should I vote for you?

I will utilize my knowledge, skills, relationships and experience to create a positive change in our city. I have run successful businesses and managed large construction projects. I want to make our community healthy, engaged and culturally active. I’m the person to call when you want a job done and done well.

 

Your main goal if elected?

I want to ensure that our city is thriving with prosperous citizens, successful businesses and tourists all of which are indicators of a healthy and strong community. I want to know that after my term is completed that I have left the city in better shape than when I started.
