LETTERS: Constituents not shut out


Re: Lack of MP’s office ignored, June 24.


Re: Lack of MP’s office ignored, June 24.

I am writing to clarify the letter to the editor published regarding my Constituency Office.

Following the election on Oct. 19, we proceeded with the plan to renovate our campaign office into the Government of Canada office that would serve the constituents of South Surrey-White Rock.

Over the course of the next few months, unbeknownst to us, the ownership of the premises changed hands. During this time we had to renegotiate our lease agreement. This took longer than expected.

Once completed, we proceeded with the renovations required.

A temporary office in White Rock was set up, through the City of White Rock, where my two local staff worked, handling all constituent requests, via meetings, phone and email.

I would like to thank Mayor Wayne Baldwin and the City of White Rock for their assistance with facilitating our temporary office.

Our constituents know we are now in our permanent premises in the Peninsula Village Shopping Centre, where we will continue to serve the people of South Surrey-White Rock. For contact information, please refer to my website – diannewattsmp.ca

MP Dianne Watts, South Surrey-White Rock
