Councillor Allison Patton

Drawing from the experience of having lived and raised my family in diverse pockets of Surrey, including Cloverdale, White Rock, and South Surrey I have gained a well rounded perspective of the multi-dimensional needs within each town centre.

I have a strong sense of giving back to my community. As a Naturopathic Doctor in South Surrey of 18 years, I work with my partners, associates and staff to provide my patients with solutions to their health related concerns.

What I have noticed over the years is that a person’s health is closely linked to the health of the community they live, work and play.  It is for this reason that I ran to become a City Councillor with the Safe Surrey Coalition. I want to ensure that our communities in all areas of Surrey are healthy and thriving.   A motto that resinates with me is "Live, Work, Play and Stay in Surrey".

Key Projects

Working closely with the School Board to ensure that the Five Year Capital Plan for Schools comes to fruition so that we can support Smart Development is important to me. I look forward to forming our Municipal Police Service and I am excited about the SkyTrain construction.

I'm proud of an expanding portfolio within Economic Development and being that I am a business owner, I understand the importance of local business economy.  I look forward to working closely with academia, non-profit and all levels of government to support and improve the quality of life of our residents and the overall health of our local and regional communities.
