Jonathan Ho


Political affiliations (past and present): Richmond Community Coalition

What neighbourhood do you live in?


What inspired you to run?

A lack of empathy and caring from current city council when they voted months ago to impose a 5.68% tax hike on Richmond residents and businesses during COVID-19. It was tone-deaf and showed their detachment from reality. I’m running to be a voice for Richmondites who feel ignored and taxed to death by this current council.

What are your top priorities?

Supporting the local economy with a stimulus plan to encourage residents to buy in Richmond. I will oppose tax hikes, and look more carefully at city spending. 

All byelection candidate profiles will be published online over the next few days.
