Cris Cannell

You have my whole familys support. If you run for mayor, that would be even better but no matter what position (if you declare) you run for, you will have my entire family and friends support. I feel you are the best candidate of all of them, even over Mike Morden as he’s been there and we need younger bodies that may or may not have been tainted with political views from past. And that there is why you will have my entire family’s vote. Well educated, smart man with a ton of common sense.

Laurene Hildebrandt

I really hope that you would run for Mayor or Councilor.

I really think you would be the man for either position and I wish you all the best if you decide to run. I have lived here for 31 1/2 years and I hope it gets back to being a great city again.

George Clarke

We desperately need people like you, who will offer a strong alternative to those who would close their eyes to the situation we now face. You would have a lot of support if you choose to run for office. Whether you run for Mayor or councilor, we’re behind you. You better than most know how much is at stake.

Ahmed, did an outstanding job with Cops for Cancer this weekend. He attended Countryfest both Sat & Sun to help out Cops for Cancer. Spent the better part of both days sitting in the jail cell getting donations to send kids to Camp Goodtimes right here in Maple Ridge. What community spirit !!!!!!!!!’

Thank you Ahmed for joining the fight against childhood cancer with us! Cops for Cancer could not be possible without community supporters like you. You’re a true hero!

Ahmed A. Yousef you were amazing!! So well-spoken, precise, hand gestures and body language perfect. You were made for a place on our council! You have no idea how much I appreciate all you do and being so respectful. It is an honour to have you and your family as part of this community. Please run for office here.

Chelsa Meadus

Excellent delivery by you and the other representative. I can’t imagine anyone in support of the projects didn’t take a moment and rethink their position, after your examples of the negative effects of such facilities in other communities.

I’m sorry appreciation wasn’t expressed by the chair for all the hard work of the committee. Her main focus of concern seemed to be that those who have put hundreds of hours into the cause expressed a sign of support when their united voice was finally heard- by clapping. Jazz hands next time folks!

Mohamed El Ashmawi

Very well spoken! Reference to a similar project in Coquitlam and its findings is excellent. Hopefully the community comments are heard and taken into account

Shannon Lynne
