Sylvia Bishop and Beth Johnson

A well known and respected name in civic politics has come out in support of Sylvia Bishop, candidate for Delta council in the September 18th by-election.

Former Delta mayor, Beth Johnson is backing Bishop.

“I have known Sylvia for a long time. I know her to be hard working, dedicated and equipped to take on the responsibility as a delta councilor. She will serve Delta well.”

Johnson says when Bishop first contacted her to discuss her bid for council, Johnson was thrilled to hear it. Citing a proven ability to work across political boundaries on politically sensitive issues, Johnson said Bishop was the right person for the job as chair of her Mayor’s Youth Task Force. “She has the ability to work with people of differing points of view and still move forward to reach a common goal. That makes her perfect for the job of councilor. Sylvia is articulate and intelligent, perfect for the job.”

Johnson first served as a Delta councilor from 1981 – 1987. She was elected mayor in 1990 and served for three terms before stepping down in 1999.
