We’re off and running for November’s civic election. A familiar name and a new civic organization are ready to run.

“I am running as the Mayoralty candidate with One Delta, a new civic organization,” five time Councillor KRISTA ENGELLAND announced today.

“I'm running because I firmly believe we need a new direction at city hall. I care deeply about Delta, its people, its history and its land use,” Engelland stated.  “As Mayor I intend to ensure Delta residents have a real say in their community.”

Engelland went on to say, she has a vision and a plan for the community and there are many opportunities that are not being realized.  “People are telling me they feel powerless and need a Mayor who will lead the community.”

“People are encouraging me to run because they feel their concerns are not being heard by this mayor and this council. They are frustrated by a lack of transparent processes and accountability. “

Engelland said her 15 years as a Delta Councillor prepared her for the job as Mayor.  “I know what it takes to run a municipality. Delta needs a full time Mayor who will take a lead for Delta residents and work to achieve what is best for their interests first.”

“There is an opportunity for change this November and I am the right person to be that change.” Engelland is a life-long resident of Delta and has lived in all three communities. Engelland grew up in Ladner, graduating from Delta Senior Secondary.  She and her husband started their family in North Delta and later moved to Tsawwassen. She works at the family business located on River Road.
