Lord we thank you for Lisa Beare, the new MLA for Maple-Ridge Pitt Meadows. Grant her wisdom and clarity today as she settles into her new role in Victoria. We ask for quick relational connections with her colleagues and bless her family times over the summer. Amen
Lisa grew up in Maple Ridge and has been raising a young family in the community. Early in her career she worked as a commercial pilot. She demonstrated her commitment to good governance early on, with a diploma in local government management from the University of Victoria.
Long a passionate advocate for social causes and a committed volunteer, Lisa got her start in politics in 2014 when she was elected as a member of the local school board. Her time on the school board and her own experiences as a mother led her to become an advocate for quality public education for all British Columbians.
