Thank You Everyone

Hello Everyone,

So the results are in, and election night was a very good night for Vancouver! COPE and Vision won resounding victories at all levels and we finally have leadership that understands the urgent challenges we face as a community. Unfortunately, I will not be a part of the School Board, but we came pretty close.

Luckily though, we have a great team in place and elected three amazing COPE trustees who will be joined by four amazing Vision trustees as well.

I want to thank everyone who supported my campaign. From people all over the world who donated their money to local friends who donated their time. It is incredibly humbling to be reminded so strongly of the amazing people in your life. And you are all indeed such amazing people.

While I won’t be at the Board as a trustee, and while there is no more campaign, the challenges of our city are still great. A lot has been said the past few weeks and months and it is vital that promises become actions. I will be doing my best to make sure our city heads in the right direction, and I urge as many here in Vancouver to do the same.

Democracy doesn’t end when the ballots are counted. There’s a lot left to do. Let’s all help build the city we want to live in.

From the bottom of my heart, thank you.

-Alvin
