Chris O'Brian - “Moving Forward with Positive Change”
I have lived in Maple Ridge since 2006 and am asking for your vote. I am qualified as I’m familiar with the issues, have a clear vision of the changes needed, and have an extensive education and background working in mental health and addictions. I am currently a volunteer with several organizations in Maple Ridge. My full platform can be found at www.chrisobrian.ca. My main platform goals are as follows:
Move away from the Housing First model currently used by B.C. Housing for those who are street entrenched and addicted and use a Treatment Recovery-Based Model. There are ample research studies by experts in the field that show the positive outcomes that can be realized from the Recovery-Based Model.
Preserve and protect the ALR.
Keep property taxes at 0% increase over the next three years, then review this afterwards.
The words provided are that of the candidate. The City of Maple Ridge does not endorse any candidate.
