Since emigrating from Uganda, Adil and his family have called Richmond home since 1974 and is an air transport pilot based at YVR. In aviation, communication is critical to a pilot’s work; He wants to bring the same kind of mentality to City Hall where greater dialogue, two-way communication is absolutely necessary.
An alumni of 655 Air Cadet Squadron and a graduate of Quilchena, Burnett and Richmond High, Adil believes in hard work and dedication - the kind of values he will bring to City Hall, and the kind of values his father, Mahmood Awan, has impressed upon him over the years.
Adil decided to run independently in order to bring “the voice of the people to city hall and exclusively answer to the residents of Richmond” without being tied to specific party interests. He hopes to tackle the city’s housing crisis and advocate for increased transparency at city hall
