Richard Walton Interview: Candidate for Mayor in the District of North Vancouver

Richard Walton has managed to quietly position himself as the right person, at the right time for the job of Mayor in the District. As we’ve discussed before, even his campaign website even reads as though electing Walton to the Mayor’s chair is the natural choice. The District Councillor has also managed to get endorsements from a wide selection of politicos including outgoing Mayor Janice Harris, MP Don Bell, Councillor Lisa Muri and high-profile council candidate Wayne Hunter.

Walton was also the first to stake out the “leadership” ground, even being the first of the four candidates for mayor to officially file his nomination papers.

So why does Walton, who quietly went about his job as Councillor over past three years without much media attention, think he is the right choice to lead the District into the future?

From his press announcement:

“I believe our head of local government should lead the community in ensuring that we will thrive for years to come, and should run District Hall and its $120M budget effectively; I want to provide you with that leadership,ā€ Walton said on his website. ā€œI will bring vision and a depth and breadth of experience to the position of Mayor. This community deserves nothing less.ā€
