A Surrey councillor who has told The Leader she wants to be mayor has opened a "community hub" in Newton.

The so-called hub will serve as a gathering place for residents, local artists, poetry readings, dancing, etc.

It is located at 103 15385 Highway 10.

The office has been donated by the mall owner, said Coun. Barinder Rasode.

"Any costs associated with that will be coming from funds donated to my campaign fund," she said.

She said the location will become her campaign office, when the civic campaign begins.

Meanwhile, she will be reaching out to the public.

"I believe a piece moving forward into the coming election is to determine whether you have the passion, and values, to want to lead," Rasode said. "But I think a more significant piece of that is an understanding and support from the community."

She's working to build on the momentum she has already established, she said.

The grand opening of the community hub is June 7, from 11a.m. to 3 p.m.
