Dave Westley decided to run for council for a very simple reason, “I love Mission.”
A resident since 1995, Westley _ who is married with two grown children – has been a musician, carpenter, contractor, site superintendent and senior projects manager and enjoyed every career.
“I love it when my daily commute reaches Ruskin and Silverdale because I’m finally home,” he said. “I love the Envision concerts Wednesdays and Fridays in Fraser River Heritage Park, I love the Mission Folk Music Festival, I love Old Car Sunday, I love the Christmas Craft Fair, I love the Farmers’ Market.”
Westley said Mission is a beautiful place filled with an eclectic and diverse group of beautiful people.
“My goal is to work with the mayor, council and staff to ensure that Mission remains and continues in the future to be a livable community.”
“Every election it’s talk talk – revitalize the downtown, develop the waterfront, build the bypass – yet it never gets done done. Time to stop talking and start working to make those promises reality.”
