Endorsement of Manjit Sohi

“I met Manhit over 15 years ago when we both worked for the City of Abbotsford.  As we coordinated our respective departments’ review of development applications I had many conversations with Manjit and came to appreciate his character and integrity.  

With Manjit’s experience in the public sector, he knows how city hall actually functions and also how it ought to function; that city hall needs to guard the public interest but at the same time must be responsive to the challenges faced by individual citizens.  

Manjit will bring an important independent perspective to Council debates and be a voice of reason at the Council table.

I consider Manjit to be a friend and am pleased to endorse his campaign for Abbotsford City Council.”

“For years while he served as a senior building official at the City of Abbotsford it was my frequent privilege to interface with Manjit Sohi on many complex, and even vexing, building code matters. I learned quickly that Manjit is an honest, professional leader who is approachable, and a capable man with a deep commitment to protecting and promoting the citizens of our city. Manjit’s integrity and sound thinking, mixed with his willing heart and years of working experience at City Hall, will ensure his value and contribution to our city. I am pleased to endorse Manjit Sohi to serve on Abbotsford Council.”

“I have known Manjit for a new of years, and I believe that he would be an excellent councilor for Abbotsford. 

He is well researched and versed on the issues and I appreciate his ability to listen, debate and make independent policy positions. He will listen to all citizens of Abbotsford and act on their best interests.

I believe that his past experience working in the building department, will be an excellent asset in getting things done for citizens and taxpayers of Abbotsford.  He will be able to cut through the bureaucracy of city hall and help Abbotsford move forward.

He has my vote and I encourage you to support Manjit Sohi.”

“I met Manjit on a local board and i have always liked his tactful and considerate approach. Found him to be very common sense, friendly and approachable. 

I also found him to be a team player but was not afraid to say his opinion, which I believe will serve Abbotsford well. As a dairy farmer I found him to be knowledgeable and respectful of the hard work and importance of the agricultural business.”

I have known and worked with Manjit for many years and know he will make an excellent advocate for the citizens of Abbotsford. He is very professional and knowledgeable and will put those attributes to good use as an honest, capable and personable member of Council for the City of Abbotsford. I urge everyone to join me in voting for Manjit Sohi in the coming election.”

I’m proud to support Manjit Sohi. I have been a volunteer and organizer in Abbotsford for over 25 years and it is always exciting when someone new, someone committed, someone ready, steps forward to serve the public.

Manjit and I share a passion for building better communities. He will work hard for local businesses to get back on their feet and get ahead.  He will restore confidence in residents worried about their property taxes.  He will bring a fresh and independent perspective to the council table on infrastructure priorities and service delivery…and he will do this with dignity, integrity and respect for you, the taxpayer. 

That’s why I’m supporting Manjit for Abbotsford City Council.
