Former Richmond City Councillor Sue Halsey-Brandt Endorses RITE Richmond Candidates
RICHMOND, BC – With just five days remaining until the November 15 Municipal Elections in Richmond, RITE Richmond’s City Council and School Trustee candidates have earned the endorsement of former Richmond City Councillor and School Trustee Sue Halsey-Brandt.
“I believe that the RITE Richmond candidates will best represent the people of Richmond and I support them in the 2014 civic election,” said Sue Halsey Brandt. “I have known Carol Day and Michael Wolfe for many years and have seen firsthand their dedication to the City of Richmond and I am impressed with their advocacy and hard work.”
Halsey-Brandt served as a member of the Richmond City Council from 2001 until her retirement from public service in 2011. Halsey-Brandt was very popular with voters and was re-elected three times to City Council, finishing second in the polls in 2008 after topping them in the two previous re-election campaigns. Prior to City Council, she served as a School Board Trustee for 17 years where she met and worked with Day.
While in council, Halsey-Brandt served on the Finance; General Purposes; Parks, Recreation and Cultural Services; and Planning Standing Committees; and was Vice Chair of the Public Works and Transportation Committee.
In addition to nearly three decades of public service, Halsey-Brandt worked as a teacher at Strathcona Elementary School.
