Our Transparency Commitments To The People of Richmond:
RITE Richmond has never accepted large contributions from the special interest groups who finance other civic political groups.
We will disclose all of our financial contributions DURING the election campaign. Unlike the other civic groups, you won’t have to wait until the year after the election to find out who has donated to our campaign. That’s our commitment to transparency.
That’s the kind of transparency RITE Richmond will bring to Richmond City Council and that’s the transparency you deserve. View 2021 By-election campaigning financing here.
Our Commitment To Change
We’re hearing it throughout Richmond – people are wanting change in this city.
From Hamilton to Steveston, Brighouse to Shellmont and Cambie to Seafair, Richmondites are tired of a City Council that won’t consult them on City projects. A City Council that hasn’t promoted healthy business start-ups. A City Council that won’t open up the books on the Richmond Oval. A City Council that won’t stop the industrialization of the Fraser River. A City Council that wouldn’t have preserved the Garden City Lands if it wasn’t for people like Carol Day and Michael Wolfe stepping up on behalf of citizens.
This City Council isn’t listening and It’s time for the RITE Change.. RITE Richmond will bring that change with a focus is on environmental and climate justice, a sustainable economy, affordability and create inclusive city for everyone. We believe our social and cultural lives should be integrated with our political lives. We will prioritize reconciliation with Indigenous communities and honouring languages, territories, and histories.
Governing With Integrity For The People Of Richmond
RITE Richmond’s Code of Ethics’ origin came from an ordinary Richmondite – which shows that we are motivated by the people we want to represent and not beholden to special interests. That Code of Ethics which guides everything we do states that we will “Put public interest first”. We will always put the interests of the Richmond taxpayer first and we will not be moved or threatened by a large donor, unlike the other civic groups.
A vote for a RITE Richmond candidate is a vote for a better way of doing business. We are committed to putting you, the voter and the taxpayer, first, always.
