Excerpt from Pam Goldsmith-Jones’ website: …..I’m passionate about open, accessible and fair decision making that includes us all. I’ve presented at the United Nations on West Vancouver’s climate change plan, protested the destruction of Eagleridge Bluffs. As mayor, my Council and I prioritized the attraction of talent to the community and supported citizens in their leadership efforts. I am known for big and bold ideas, including urban revitalization, conservation, child care, and the arts. Prioritizing conservation in West Vancouver, working on projects such as the reduction of solid waste, and the restoration of the foreshore/intertidal zone, for which the city was awarded the UN Global Green City Award, I was privileged to work as a key component in West Vancouver’s fundraising efforts for the 2010 Winter Olympics.
