Councillor Kelly Greene
Born in Richmond Hospital, Kelly Greene has had a lifelong love of her community. She has been a formidable advocate for public education, as well as social and environmental issues. She is committed to continuing to make Richmond a better place to live, today, and for future generations.
She greatly enjoys her diverse and welcoming neighbourhood, and loves taking her three small children to everything Richmond has to offer, from heritage events, to the Nature Park, or just watching the airplanes land at YVR. Richmond is a home to be proud of.
Kelly graduated from UBC with a Bachelor of Arts in 2002, and has worked for multinational banking and accounting firms, as well as leading small business. Kelly cofounded an advocacy group to keep Richmond public schools open, funded, and safe, and was successful in achieving those goals.
Passionate about serving the residents of Richmond, Kelly’s goals are protecting farmland from speculators, significantly expanding affordable and market rentals, bridging cultural silos, and ensuring fiscal responsibility. Kelly will actively work with all levels of government to ensure that Richmond resident’s needs are met.
Kelly is a member of the General Purposes, Finance, Community Safety, and Public Works & Transportation Committees. Kelly is also a Council representative to the Child Care Development Advisory, Council/School Board Liaison, and Richmond Public Art Advisory Committees. She is Council liaison to the Aquatic Services Board, Minoru Seniors Society, West Richmond Community Association, and Richmond Public Library Board (alternate).
