"Thank you to all who applied for this position. We interviewed six exceptional candidates for the open seat and each one brought a unique set of strengths that would have been an asset to our council," said Mayor Anne McEnerny-Ogle. "We look forward to working with Mr. Paulsen this year on the many issues of importance to Vancouver."
