Mehreen Chaudry ,
for council, City of Burnaby
I am running for City Council with the Burnaby Green Party. I was born in Ottawa, Ontario and grew up in Pakistan. I moved to the United States to pursue my Bachelor of Arts with honors in International Business and Economics and a Master’s degree in Business Administration from the University of Illinois. I have extensive professional experience working as a project manager with multinational organizations.For the past two years, I have been a member of the Burnaby community with my two young sons. Having faced issues in Burnaby myself, I understand the challenges and needs of young families. In addition, I am highly motivated, outgoing and fully capable to solve those problems to benefit the entire community. I want a better city for not only my children but for all the children to grow up in. The top three issues in Burnaby that I want to solve are: 1.Affordable Housing: 2.Lack of daycare space and before and after school care: 3.Healthy, Accessible Public Spaces: Canada is the only western country to break into the top 20 most diverse, and I proudly represents that diversity as part of the Burnaby Community. So I would urge every Muslim brothers and sister to come out and Vote so we can make our city a better place to live. How you can help me is to please come out vote and urge your friends and family to vote. Please reach out to me with any questions you have and anything that you want to discuss.
