"As one who has worked and lived in the Tri-Cities area for over 15 years, rare is the occurrence when you meet and chat with a person about youth issues and who genuinely understands and recognizes the importance of services to our most vulnerable youth. Dennis Marsden is such a person.
With the growth of municipalities, and in particular Coquitlam, it is evident that youth services is an area that needs more attention and varied approaches from local governments - community taking care of community. Approaches that are progressive, preventative in nature and what youth want. Dennis is a person who understands this, empathizes with the needs of youth, and recognizes Coquitlam can be a leader in moving into more social services for youth of the community. Progressive, innovative, and immediate action is required. Talk is cheap, ACTION is needed. Youth are the future and need a voice. I see that passion and commitment in Dennis."
