Why should I vote for you?

You should vote for Stephen Andrew, because I will stand up for Victoria. When I was in the media, I asked the tough questions, and I got answers. It’s hard to get straight answers anymore from the current 5mayor. I want to change that. I want to head an open and transparent government. I want to share answers with you. Who is in charge of the new Johnson Street Bridge? How will we move forward to deal with our sewage issue, in a respectful and democratic manner? How can we be assured that we are spending your money wisely? As mayor of Victoria, I won’t waste your money.

 

Your main goal if elected?

As mayor of Victoria, I will assign responsibilities to councillors to focus on key issues, including economic development, public safety and a sustainable quality of life. I want to see job opportunities created in a strong Victoria economy, so that our children do not have to leave our city in order to work. As mayor, I will be an avid advocate for homeless and social issues.
