Port Moody Councillor Zoë Royer announced Monday that she is running for re-election this fall.
Royer was first elected in 2011 and said in a press release that she will continue to advocate for a better plan to protect our beautiful natural environment and our resident’s interests; “I’m deeply interested in growing our local economy so that small, independent businesses and artists can truly thrive, and residents can work, shop and play right here in a walkable and vibrant Port Moody”.
During the OCP deliberations, Councillor Zoë Royer pushed for more employment space to ensure well-paying jobs become available for residents, to stimulate our daytime economy and help reduce traffic congestion. Throughout her three years on Council, she has advocated for more affordable seniors housing in the heart of the City, expanded Rocky Point Park and library space, a revitalized Inlet Sports Field and amenities to better serve West Port Moody.
Royer is the Chair and Founder of KaBoom! The Port Moody Art Explosion and a significant financial donor to the Mossom Creek Hatchery Rebuild project. She also serves as Library Board Trustee, Chair of Land Use and Port Moody rep for Joint Family Court and Youth Justice committees, and has chaired the Arts & Culture committee and Heritage Commission.
