Ash Amlani, mayoral candidate in the District of North Vancouver

Ash Amlani, mayoral candidate in the District of North VancouverThe District of North Vancouver has its first declared mayoral challenger and a new municipal political party backing her.

Ash Amlani announced her intentions along with the formation of the Building Bridges Electors Society on Saturday at Delbrook Community Centre.

“Today, people are waiting much longer in traffic than they were before the 2014 election and it’s become even harder for people to buy or rent a place in North Vancouver,” she said. “It’s time for a new style of leadership at (district) hall.”

Amlani, who has lived in the District of North Vancouver for 16 years, said her team will be focused on getting the large swath of North Vancouver that doesn’t engage with local government to the table “and then start to take action that is based on what the community is saying but is also based on what best practices are,” she said. “Bringing forward those ideas, those thoughts and those opinions is fundamentally what needs to shift.”
