Affordable, thoughtful housing. Better transportation. Climate action. A Better Maple Ridge.
Jenny Tan is a proven leader with a track record of tackling complex issues and getting things done. In a time when we need urgent change, Jenny brings the vision and experience to tackle the affordable housing crisis in a thoughtful way, address our need for more transit and transportation, and act on the climate crisis.
A Maple Ridge we can afford to live in, where we can find good jobs, and that we are proud of.
- Housing that works for seniors, families, and young people, with enough services for all Maple Ridge residents.
- Pushing for better transit and transportation so that residents can travel around Maple Ridge and across Metro Vancouver faster and more conveniently.
- Stronger relationships with senior levels of government to get the funding we need for services in Maple Ridge.
Housing advocate, non-profit leader, business advocate
Jenny's background in business development, non-profits, and housing policy means she is keenly focused on making City Council work for people. She currently serves as the director at a non-profit that advocates for safe and active communities. Previously, she has been the director of business development for a marketing agency and worked with major corporate clients such as Save-On-Foods, the Whitecaps FC, and BCLC. Frustrated with the housing crisis and what it means for seniors and young people, she launched a podcast Should I Stay or Should I Go? to figure out what urgent steps we can take to help families have the housing they need.
Deep roots, strong vision
