A pair of incumbent Delta councillors have announced their intentions to seek re-election in this October’s municipal election.
Dylan Kruger and Alicia Guichon will be running once again with Mayor George Harvie’s Achieving for Delta team.
“As an expectant father, now more than ever I feel like it is important to have the voices of young families represented at the council table,” said Kruger. “I am excited to continue to work with Mayor Harvie and our team to build a safe and inclusive community for my daughter to grow up in.”
Guichon said it has been an honour to serve on council the last four years.
“I care deeply about our community. As a mother, a farmer and a small business owner, I want to continue to work with our Achieving for Delta team to make Delta the best it can be,” said Guichon.
Elected in 2018, Kruger and Guichon are the youngest members of Delta council.
“I am running with the Achieving for Delta team because I believe in Mayor Harvie’s vision for our community,” added Guichon. “George’s depth of experience makes him well suited for the role of mayor. He knows how to get things done and deliver on his promises.”
Kruger says Delta has been lucky to have Harvie leading the city over the last few years during the most uncertain financial period in the city’s history.
“I also have tremendous respect and appreciation for the way that George has come alongside and mentored the younger members of council,” added Kruger.
Harvie, who announced his re-election bid last October, will be holding an election announcement on Tuesday, May 24 at Tsawwassen Springs where it is expected he will announce his full slate of candidates for council and Delta school board.
