City Council Candidate
Franco was born in Vancouver and raised in Little Italy, along Commercial Drive. He speaks fluent Italian and is proud of his heritage and the values that he and generations of Italian Vancouverites hold, such as hard work, mutual respect, and strong family ties. Since 1984, Franco has been a serial entrepreneur, having started, developed and sold many businesses throughout Vancouver.
Over the past 10 years, Franco has witnessed and experienced how City Hall has imposed numerous tax increases, excessive red tape, and had a total lack of support for small businesses in Vancouver. He has seen first-hand how City Hall has suffocated businesses and forced entrepreneurs to relocate to more business-friendly cities, such as Burnaby or Richmond.
Franco is keen to attack skyrocketing commercial rents, how housing unaffordability has
led to a shortage of workers, and weak salary growth. Franco believes that these factors – exacerbate affordability for everyone, especially for seniors and youth.
Franco is running for city councillor so he can help other businesses, and to create a one-stop business centre to support small businesses. Small businesses in Vancouver pay the lion’s share of city property and other taxes, and they also generate over 80% of local jobs. A more supportive city hall is needed for Vancouver’s small businesses.
