"YOUR VOICE OF REASON"

ELECT JUDY DUECK FOR COUNCILLOR

ABOUT JUDY

   

I have called Maple Ridge my home for over 40 years and raised my two daughters here with my husband, Ron, because we love the community. 


I had the pleasure of running a successful consulting business in the community prior to joining the management team with the School District as their Manager of Health, Safety & Wellness, where I worked until my recent retirement. 


My extensive employment background has afforded me many opportunities to develop strong leadership and interpersonal skills that have also served me well as a previously elected official for our community, where, after 21 years of public service, I earned the compliment of being known as “The Voice of Reason.” 


Serving on the Board of Education from 1993 - 2002, during which I was elected by my peers first as vice-chair and then as chair, as well as serving as a municipal councillor from 2002 – 2014, were some of the most rewarding years of my life. 


Although I decided to not run for re-election in 2014, I have never lost interest in serving my community at the municipal level of politics, as I believe that Maple Ridge has a bright future and I know that I can once again contribute to ensuring that we, as a community, build that future together.  


I bring a proven track record of being approachable and informed and I pride myself on the fact that I am known for my high level of integrity. 


I believe our community can address both our issues and our opportunities, but it needs experienced and trustworthy people leading the conversations and I know I bring those qualities and the kind of leadership that is needed to move us forward. 


I would be honoured to receive your trust and be “The Voice of Reason” that you can count on. On October 20, 2018, please vote Judy Dueck for councillor.
