SURREY — Voters now have four mayoral candidates to choose from in the upcoming Oct. 20 election.
Pauline Greaves, a professor in business and management at Langara College, says she will run as an independent but noted that “joining a slate is under consideration.”
Her platform focuses on the need for a municipal police force, “possibly aligned with a bordering community,” improved infrastructure to “meet Surrey’s explosive development,” the need for accessible and affordable housing, and she also calls for an empty house tax to be implemented to help with the latter goal.
“We need a different lens in terms of future of the planning of the city,” Greaves told the Now-Leader.
Greaves joins three other mayoral candidates in Surrey, including Surrey First’s Tom Gill, Surrey Integrity Now’s Bruce Hayne (formerly Surrey First), and Safe Surrey Coalition’s Doug McCallum.
