McDonald announces another bid for Delta Council

Longtime councillor to test popularity at the polls

Bruce McDonald

One of Delta’s incumbent councillors officially announced Monday (Oct. 3) they will be seeking re-election in the Nov. 19 civic vote.

Longtime councillor and former mayoralty candidate Bruce McDonald said he will be running as an Independent because he wants to represent Delta’s citizens, not a political party or a single issue.

“I believe in working together to find solutions arrived at through co-operation and compromise,” he stated in a press release. “I do my research and I exercise my judgment based on experience and knowledge of the complex issues which come before Council.  I am looking forward to serving the people of Delta if re-elected.”

McDonald, who lives in North Delta, has been popular at the polls in past elections.

First elected in 1988, he has been re-elected five times, topping the polls in four of those elections.

McDonald chairs the Environment Committee, the Hunting Regulatory Committee and is a member of the Parks and Recreation Committee. He is also a member of the Delta Council/School Board Liaison Committee.

He also chaired the Tsawwassen area plan committee and subsequent public meetings that brought out sizable crowds to discuss the future of that community, most noticeably the question concerning the proposed development of the Southlands property.
