Barinder Rasode aiming to be first South Asian woman mayor in North America

June 17th, 2014 · 3 Comments

While everyone awaits the announcement on June 19 that Councillor Linda Hepner will be the candidate for Surrey First, breakaway councillor Barinder Rasode is out and running.

Her strategy of using her rented office space as a place for community events is kind of interesting — I haven’t seen that one before. And she seems to have gathered a fair bit of support already.

But it seems to be a very open question whether there’s enough dissatisfaction among likely voters in Surrey to overcome the Surrey First machine that Dianne Watts created. It’s still very early days in this race. I hear that various high-powered federal Liberal types are getting involved in Hepner’s campaign.
