Carol Day has served as a Richmond councillor for seven years and was a school trustee for three years.
Known for making Richmond a better place, Carol has brought a new approach to council, listening to Richmond residents’ concerns and tirelessly seeking solutions to key issues.
Her top priority is finding ways of making home ownership and rental housing more affordable for working families. This includes advocating for revised zoning bylaws to allow for gentle density that enhances neighbourhoods while respecting unique character.
Carol currently serves on the Planning Committee, the Community Safety Committee, as liaison to the Steveston Harbour Authority Board, Childcare committee, Seniors Advisory committee, East Richmond Community Centre Association and the Richmond Art Gallery committee.
She is committed to protecting Richmond’s environment and her volunteer efforts for 30 years have made her a household name. As chair of VAPOR, she worked to stop the YVR jet fuel pipeline, marine terminal and 80-million-liter tank farm, a major risk to the Fraser River. She also worked to save the Garden City Lands.
She understands business having owned a sign company in Richmond for 43 years and she’s voted against unnecessary tax increases.
