Saanich council candidate Shawn Newby.

Name: Shawn Newby

Age: 36

Occupation: Contractor

Describe your relevant background:

I was born and raised in Saanich. It is a great place to live and work. I come from a small business background. I know what it takes to organize people and procedures to get the job done. I know how to bring an idea to reality. Building a business from the ground up takes dedication and determination and that is needed on council to address the challenges that face Saanich.

How would you be a beneficial voice on Saanich council?

As a young and “colourful” council member, I would have the ability to engage part of the community that doesn’t usually have an interest in how the community is governed. With only 25 per cent of residents interested in how the municipality operates, there is 75 per cent without a voice. I can bring the whole community together to strengthen our municipality for generations to come.

What is your campaign slogan or guiding principle?

It’s a good time for my generation to get involved in our future!
