Why I’m supporting Barry Hobbis for Victoria City Council
Barry Hobbis is running for the vacant seat in the November 20, 2010 byelection. I’m voting for him and I hope you will too.
I’ve known Barry for a couple of years, since we were both candidates in the last civic election. We are on the DVBA’s Clean and Safe Committee, which finds ways of making our downtown a safer, more vibrant place to live and work.
Barry has the combination of life skills that make for a good city councillor. He’s run a successful business and has a strong background with policing and social causes. He has a good all round knowledge of the big issues facing our city. I know he’ll be able to hit the ground running. Council has a steep learning curve and with only one year before the regular election, Barry is the candidate I know will be able to make an impact at this most crucial time in Victoria’s history.
But don’t take my word for it. Check out his website, visit him at his office on Pandora, across from the Our Place shelter. If you like what you hear, please vote for Barry on Saturday, November 20. Check out the City’s website for more information on where and when to vote.
