I have known Catherine Evans since I was a Vancouver City Councillor. We also served together on the Vancouver Public Library Board, where I witnessed first-hand her dedication, creativity and ability to build consensus among both internal partners and stakeholders.
When Catherine ran for the Park Board in 2014 I was pleased to endorse her candidacy. I am now delighted she is standing for nomination to City Council.
Catherine will benefit so many of our citizens with her broad range of involvement in our community, and has amply demonstrated both her willingness and proven ability to work with people from varied backgrounds and perspectives. Her experience, skill and passion will help build an even more engaged city.
George Chow, MLA Vancouver Fraserview, 2017 – present, Vancouver City Councillor, 2005 – 2011,
I had the pleasure of serving with Catherine on the Vancouver Public Library Board for 6 years. For three of those, as Chair of the Board, Catherine provided strong and steady leadership, especially in her focus on good governance practices. Her commitment to transparency and inclusive processes, her knowledge of municipal services, and her years of experience with a broad range of community organizations have since then proved to be valuable assets on the Park Board. Catherine will bring these strengths, along with her deep interest in civic issues and the problems facing our communities, to the work of City Council. This is a critical time in the evolution of our City, and I know that Catherine will bring a creative, pragmatic, and thoughtful approach to solving the issues we will be facing together.

Catherine is a long-time member of Vision and has served the residents of Vancouver well on the Park Board and in many other capacities. She has a clear understanding of budgetary and financial matters and has the experience needed to deal with difficult and sometimes controversial issues. She is passionate about public service and will work hard to benefit the residents of Vancouver on City Council.
