Brodie to Run Again for Mayor of Richmond, BC

For Immediate Release

“We’ve achieved a lot in Richmond over the last term, but there’s still much to do,” Mayor Malcolm Brodie stated today as he officially announced his intention to run again for Mayor of Richmond, BC. “Richmond has become an international city. With the Canada Line, the Olympic Oval and the 2010 Winter Olympics, Richmond has enhanced its international relations and international image. Yet we have a large challenge in managing our growth – especially in our City Centre.”

“We’ve accomplished a lot in this last term,” Brodie said. “The Canada Line now records well over 100,000 riders per day on average – it takes cars off our streets not to mention the convenience it provides moving people in and out of Richmond.”

“The Richmond Olympic Oval was the premier venue for the 2010 Olympic Winter Games. It is now converted to welcome the community for a multitude of sports, recreation, fitness and wellness activities. It also supports our Sport Hosting Strategy with many events from local to international in scope.”

“The environment is always an important factor in our decisions. Richmond has been a leader in addressing climate change and generally enhancing the environment. We’ve increased our single-family household recycling by almost 10% over the last few years. We’ve also increased our parkland, improved our key recreational areas, and preserved our agricultural land,” he said.

“Community safety will always be a substantial aspect as we improve our quality of life. Our crime rate has decreased and we always make sure we are prepared in the event of an emergency.”

“Like most cities in the Metro Vancouver, Richmond is growing,” said Brodie. “The challenge is to manage that growth and protect the quality of life that Richmond residents enjoy. We’ve done a good job to this point, and we’re now coming to a point where we need to enhance the development of our City Centre. That will be our new legacy for the future of Richmond. I hope to continue to focus on these and other objectives as Richmond Mayor for the next three years.”
