Delta South MLA endorses George Harvie for mayor

In a video, former councillor Ian Paton shared his support for former city manager George Harvie

Former councillor and current Delta South MLA Ian Paton is throwing his weight behind mayoral candidate George Harvie in Saturday’s civic election.

Harvie was Delta’s CAO and city manager while Paton was on council, and is currently running for mayor with the Achieving for Delta slate.

“For eight years I was on Delta city council, and I saw just how complex it is with all the different departments we have, pulling everything together,” Paton said in a video he sent to the Reporter prior to its release on Thursday, Oct. 18. He said Harvie was “a team leader every time, the team captain, making Delta such a great place to live.”

Paton commented on the work Harvie did to improve Delta’s financial situation, which Harvie has also brought up throughout his campaign.

“George always took the lead, George always was the guy all the councillors would go to to get things done,” Paton added.

“If you want a real good future mayor of this city … make sure you check off for my friend for George Harvie.”
