Amlani, who made her announcement at the Delbrook Community Centre, is part of a newly-formed municipal party in the district, known as the Building Bridges Electors Society (BBES).
The BBES came about largely due to the fact that over the last four years, “there have been many cases of district council splitting 3-3 on important issues, which gives mixed signals to district staff and leads to inefficiencies in long-term planning,” she explained. “This fall, we are providing voters with the choice to elect a council that brings diverse perspectives while working towards a common, united vision.”
Amlani told Daily Hive the aim of the BBES is to create “a thriving, healthy and prosperous community” by listening to all residents and taking action on the issues that are important to them.
“We are a stronger society when people of all ages and backgrounds are heard and represented equally,” she said. “As mayor, I will bring a style of leadership that is inclusive and actively engaged.”
