Independent Politics

Vicki at the micBy choosing not to join a political party, my route to provincial office was different than any other MLA in the past 60 years.  As an independent MLA, I have my own staff – two researchers and two constituency assistants – who each help me each day as I work to represent my constituents and tackle the many challenges and opportunities we face.  Plus, unlike other MLAs, I am not constrained by party rules and doctrine, and can speak out on behalf of my constituents – no matter the issue.

To illustrate my commitment to accountability I have an open-book policy for any Delta South resident wishing to view my expense reports.  Contact my constituency office to set up an appointment.
