In my last blog post, I mentioned a doubling of our efforts to meet Chilliwack voters on their doorstep. I want to talk about this a bit, because our aim is not just to elicit voter support; it’s to listen to voters and, in doing so, to better inform my platform and my approach as Mayor. After the election is not the time to be putting in the legwork, we need a plan now.

Chilliwack needs a proactive approach in building our community, an approach that reflects Chilliwack back to its voters. That’s why I opened my campaign office on Mill Street and that’s why I’ll continue to canvass our neighbourhoods between now and October 20th. By hearing concerns, fielding questions from both supporters and critics, we can ensure the conversation at city hall reflects the concerns of its residents

So if you see me at your doorstep or on the street, please don’t hesitate to speak your mind. Or, if I miss you or you’re unable to make it to my campaign office, please send me an email with any questions or concern you have; I’m listening today, just as I will be as your mayor.  

My campaign office is at 9340-B Mill Street, and current hours of operation are Wednesday, 12 p.m.-4 p.m., and Thursday 9 a.m.-12 p.m.  Please stop by, or email me at info@samwaddington.com.
