I co-chaired the city of Vancouver’s Stronger Vancouver Executive Sponsors Council, where Diana Perez also served as a volunteer member. This group was tasked to contemplate capital projects and service improvements and what funding mechanisms should deliver them.
I didn’t know Diana well before this work. I found her thoughtful, open-minded, and comfortable challenging the status quo. She was instrumental in making final recommendations to the city council. I believe Diana is prepared and well-suited to serve as a city councilor.
