SELINA IN THE COMMUNITY
It is so great to be back in the community full time for the summer – I have missed being in the ‘hood”. I look forward to being around the community and visiting with you during this time. You can catch up with me at the Austin Heights Daisy Day event on Saturday June 21st or on Canada Day at the Town Centre extravaganza. Of course you can always pop by the office, call, or email me.
As always, here is an update on what I have been up to:
Annual Report and Constituency Report
CQM Business Round-table - Earlier this month I hosted a Coquitlam-Maillardville Business Round-table which brought several business owners together so I could hear directly from them about the regional and provincial issues that impact their businesses. I will be using this information to create my work plan for the coming six months. Issues raised related to: goods movement through the United Blvd corridor, Patullo Bridge replacement, liquor license changes, minimum/living wage and Kinder Morgan construction mitigation to name just a few.
Community Events - Over the past month I have had the opportunity to connect with people in the community while being invited to be a judge at the Coquitlam Grande Parade, present awards at the Girl Guides awards ceremony and volunteer at the Tri-Cities Chamber of Commerce golf tournament. Of all the things that my job entails meeting and connecting with my community is by far my favourite part!
Coffee Talk I hosted my bi-annual coffee talk earlier this week where I had the opportunity to hear from a number of constituents. We had about dozen people join us for conversation surrounding the ALR, Silver Alert, the teachers strike, pipelines and lack of transit. I hope to host another Coffee Talk before the next Spring session.
