Today I am announcing that I will be resigning my seat in the Legislature at the end of April.
I have been proud to serve the constituents of Surrey in Surrey-Panorama, Surrey-Cloverdale and most recently, Surrey South for the last 13 years. It is with gratitude that I reflect on what has been an immense honour, not only to serve my community as an MLA in both government and opposition, but also my Province as a member of cabinet. This role has been exciting, challenging, and exasperating, often at the same time, but I whole-heartedly believe in our democratic system, and in our collective ability to build a better tomorrow, step-by-step.
I leave behind a record of service to my community and a legacy as the first woman with a disability to serve in the Legislature and executive council. I am happy to leave that legacy, with high hopes that I will have inspired others to public service.
