Rasode shakes up her competition as mammoth crowd turns up to hear her announce she’s running for mayor



A massive gathering at Surrey Councillor Barinder Rasode’s announcement on Saturday afternoon that she will run for mayor must have for sure shaken up her competition.

And if that’s true, then polls that will now be commissioned to see who Surrey-ites want to be mayor will reflect that: Barinder or former mayor Doug McCallum or Surrey First’s Linda Hepner?

It’s going to be an exciting time!

Let the games begin!


Photo0248_resizedTWO weeks ago, The VOICE was the first to announce at www.voiceonline.com: “Barinder Rasode to announce her run for Surrey mayor on September 20.”

I wrote:

“A post on her Facebook last week hinted that Surrey Councillor Barinder Rasode will officially announce she’s running for Surrey mayor on September 20, thus ending speculation and all kinds of rumours about what she was really planning to do.

“Sources confirmed that she will make the announcement next week.

“The post stated: “Here we go! You’re invited to a celebration of our great city.” It adds at the bottom: “September 20 at 1pm / SFU Surrey Grand Hall 13450 – 102nd Avenue, Surrey.””
