In 2018, Dylan Kruger became the youngest elected city councillor in the history of Delta. Dylan is passionate about improving livability in Delta to keep young families and seniors in our community, protecting the environment, and supporting our local businesses.
In his first term on council, Dylan was proud to put forward a motion to allow restaurants to install expanded patios, first on a temporary basis, and now permanently. He also pushed to install new pilot projects, including the successful pop-up park program, and the responsible liquor consumption program in select Delta parks.
As a new father, Dylan is running on a reenergized commitment to advocate for families at the council table and make thoughtful decisions to shape Delta for his daughter and generations to come. He is eager to continue working to revitalize Delta’s town centres and create lively hubs of commercial and community activity where young people have access to diverse housing options, amenities and social opportunities.
Continuing to deliver off-leash dog parks and infrastructure for dogs and their owners is another important piece of Dylan’s vision for a livable and vibrant Delta.
Dylan believes that local government should be accessible and accountable to everyone. He is a supporter of initiatives to make government more transparent and efficient. Respect for tax dollars is important, which is why Dylan has voted to keep taxes low and Delta debt-free. Born and raised in Delta, you will often find Dylan walking around Watershed Park with his wife Katie and dog Kobe or frequenting one of Delta's outstanding local craft breweries.

Delta was ranked by Maclean’s Magazine in 2021 as the best community in Metro Vancouver. The Achieving for Delta team has a plan to keep generations together in Delta and make Delta a livable and vibrant community where everyone feels welcome.
To ensure that we have a sustainable community moving forward, we need to continue to attract people to Delta from all ages and income brackets. We're going to do that by supporting new and diverse housing stock in our community, continuing to advance projects that revitalize our community hubs and support our local businesses such as our expanded restaurant patios, and continuing to fight for urgently needed childcare spaces and support our seniors’ mobility and care.
The Achieving for Delta team is running on a six-point platform focused on investing in parks and recreation infrastructure, keeping Delta safe, keeping taxes low, working to keep generations together in Delta, building a fair and inclusive community and taking real action on climate change and protecting our farmland.
