Karin in the Community
I am honoured to have been elected provincial representative for West Vancouver-Capilano in the October 2020 B.C. general election. Since being sworn in last November, I’ve been getting to know constituents, community groups and stakeholders by phone or video conference. I am pleased to announce, however, that I can now offer in-person meetings in my constituency office. Please email or phone to plan an appointment. While “zoom” and “teams” are useful methods of communicating, I am looking forward to face-to-face interactions!
Although I’ve lived in this riding for many years, these past seven months have given me a much deeper insight into the people and groups that serve our community. I continue to be impressed with their level of commitment and passion. I will be highlighting some of them in this, my inaugural, newsletter.
In addition to constituency work, I’ve also been in the Legislature in Victoria since March, learning all about how the government operates, and my role in it. One of my favourite things is delivering 2-minute statements in the House, where I am given the opportunity to highlight constituents and community groups my riding.
