Background. Knowledge. Experience.
TEAM's incumbent Councillor Colleen Hardwick confirmed to Vancouver Is Awesome's Mike Howell that she is unchallenged in her bid to be the first-ever mayoral candidate endorsed by TEAM For a Livable Vancouver.
She is the third generation of Hardwicks to serve Vancouver in elected office, inspired by her father Walter (yes, the avenue in Olympic Village is named in his honour) and grandmother Iris, the first woman to be elected to Vancouver's Park Board.
Anyone who follows City Council proceedings will recognize Colleen Hardwick's name. She is the one who has been consistent in her pursuit of what facts may support City plans and projections: she knows what questions to ask.
And her experience in the day-in-day-out demands and challenges of Council work places her ahead of other contenders to unseat the current mayor.
