June 15th coming out of White Rock...towards SurreyI've been out in the Fraser Valley fluctuating back and forth between Surrey and White Rock thirty seven years now. I've always been proud of the city I live in. Although Surrey's reputation has not always been stellar. Since Diane Watt the first female Mayor elected in Surrey came into play, that's begun to change! Diane Watts has managed to transform Surrey in new and exciting ways. Cleaning up the most notorious crime areas, building a new family friendly park in the center of the city with sponsored ongoing events.
She's not an in your face mayor either! She has a big plan which she quietly executes. Snow removal has been impressive since her reign, scary parts of the city are less threatening as she forces some of nefarious business out of her city. Distributing business permits to those brave enough to errect anything new in less reputable areas. My daughter has a handful of women she admires, Diane being one of them. So yesterday when we heard Diane Watts was nominated for World Mayor we were all pretty ecstatic, knowing she deserves to win! Things manifest quickly under Ms. Watts watch! She really has made a huge difference to our city, despite some of the economy woes, she's cleaning it up, and making it family friendly, while giving young women a phenomenal role model! Kudos to our Mayor who saw the hidden potential and is striving to acheive a new reputation for our city!
