"I first met Mary in 2014 when she was canvassing before the last municipal election. I was immediately taken by her authenticity, her intelligence, and her enthusiasm for New West. In fact, I enjoyed talking with her so much that the next day I emailed her to ask how I could volunteer for her campaign. Four years later, I know with certainty that my initial impressions of Mary were on point. She is someone on council who champions issues that are most important to me such as safe, accessible, affordable childcare for all families. Having a young family, which includes a great big dog, I value Mary's work towards developing New West's growing livability and walkability. Mary's, and council's, efforts to make roads in New West safer for all users, especially pedestrians and cyclists, have my full support. My husband and I moved here from Vancouver almost five years ago and continue to be impressed by the many events and festivities such as Canada Day at Queen's Park, the Food Truck Festival, and New West Pride, that make New West such a great place to live. I fully support Mary in her campaign for re-election to New Westminster City Council. "

"Mary has all the best qualities of an elected representative. She’s sincere, selfless and accountable. And she's so much fun to be around! She understands that for the civic process to be successful, it must represent the most voices so she goes out of her way to seek out the under-represented and to engage the people around her, to show them how they can become involved through volunteering, advising, listening, helping, or just showing up. She leads by example and I’m proud to call her a friend."
Jonathan Cote - Mayor, City of New Westminster
"Mary Trentadue has become a strong and thoughtful leader on New Westminster City Council and I am proud to support her re-election campaign. Mary understands the issues facing our community and is a strong advocate for families in New Westminster."

I’ve known Mary since high school. She is somebody who has always demonstrated responsibility, integrity, loyalty, compassion, and action. Her qualities ought to be shared amongst the larger community and not only amongst those lucky enough to call her our friend.
