About Diana...
 
EXPERIENCED
 
Having served for twelve years on Port Moody City Council, I have the experience, knowledge and history to contribute to continued good governance of our community.

 

My diverse background includes 30 years of working in government, private sector and non-profit organizations as well as having run my own home-based business. I believe this helps in my bringing a unique, well-rounded perspective to the role of City Councillor.

 

        As a nine-year employee of the Federal Government, working in various departments, I have learned how government systems and bureaucracies work.

        As an employee working in the private sector, I gained an understanding of the challenges facing small business owners.

        As the owner of a home-based consulting and contracting business for six years, specializing in providing services to local government clients, I gained insights as to issues and challenges facing municipalities and how they operate.

        As a manager of operations for the non-profit Fraser Basin Council for over 8 years, I have become a passionate voice for sustainability.

        For the past three years, I have been working in administration and community relations for Pacific Coast Terminals, located here in Port Moody.

 

EFFECTIVE
 

During four terms on Council, I have had the opportunity to chair almost every civic committee and have championed and facilitated numerous initiatives including: 
  • Port Moody becoming the first municipality in BC to ban cosmetic pesticides
  • The creation of the Port Moody Spike Awards recognizing  business excellence
  • Development of the Community Sustainability Plan and Sustainability Checklist
  • Establishment of a Financial Tax Incentive for the renovation of heritage homes
  • A summer food cart program to supplement the Summer Sunday Concert  Series in Rocky Point Park
  • The return of a Community Parade to Port Moody

Specific details of my civic contributions over the years can be found under the Civic Leadership tab on this website.

ENTHUSIASTIC
