“I first met Tony in his role as Chair of HUB North Shore working to make streets safer for people. We worked together on intersection designs on the Lower Lynn Interchanges project to make sure the design reflected the needs of the community including people with disabilities, people walking, and people on bikes. Tony listens to and takes the time to understand the issues before taking action. His ability to listen before acting will be a valuable asset on the City of North Vancouver Council.”
– Amy Amantea, Community Leader and Chair of North Shore Advisory Committee on Disability Issues
“Tony is not just concerned about big problems like affordability and congestion, he has good ideas about how to fix them. He knows how to work with others to co-create practical and enduring solutions. Tony will help build respect and trust amongst councillors and between council and the community. Vote Tony if you don’t want baloney!”
– Alex Boston, Former Integrated Transportation Committee chair; current Advisory Planning Commission member, Climate and energy policy advisor to local and senior governments and utilities
“In recent weeks, the public and I have had the opportunity to observe and evaluate the perspectives of the various candidates in the upcoming municipal elections. I’ve known Tony Valente for many years through his community involvement, yet he never ceases to impress me with his honest and pragmatic insight into our community’s needs. As a young person living in North Vancouver it is important for me to see candidates elected who understand the housing, transportation and environmental challenges facing my demographic. Tony is that candidate.
“Further to this, his willingness to work collaboratively with other incumbents is refreshing and not often seen in our current political climate.
“On October 20th, I’m voting Valente!”
– Brittany Barnes, Community Leader
“Tony Valente is clear-thinking, insightful, straightforward and articulate. For many years now, Tony has shown patience and persistence in working towards healthy solutions for a livable and viable City for the benefit of ALL residents. He carries himself and the organizations he represents with respect and dignity.”
– Tom Walker, President and Treasurer, North Shore Safety Council
“I have known Tony since he started grade 8 at Saint Thomas Aquinas high school. I have always known him to be hard working and an example of integrity. He was a leader in our high school and I believe he will be a successful leader in our larger City of North Vancouver community now.”
– Christopher Campbell (Mr. C), Vice Principal/Teacher, Social Studies 11
