A series of mayoralty video profiles have been produced by The Progress to prepare Chilliwack voters ahead of the Oct. 20 election.
Interview questions for all five candidates, tackled affordable housing, crime, economic development, and why citizens should vote for them.
Mayoralty candidate Brigida Crosbie, says that what sets her apart from rival candidates is her uniqueness.
“I think I’m a little bit different than the other people,” said Crosbie, when asked why people should vote for her.
“You have someone on council for 22 years, another for seven years, and another for four years,” she said. “My difference is that I work very closely with homeless on the streets.”
Crosbie said she sees the role of mayor as a “people” job.
“I’m working for the people,” she said. “I’m not working to make a difference as a political thing. I have no agenda. There is no agenda for me. I’m definitely taking into consideration all people.”
When anyone talks about homelessness “people should know about the situation from the bottom up, and know about it for real, not just sitting in the office and making policies, but truly know what is happening on the streets and taking that and moving forward. That is really important to me.”
