I am a longtime resident and business owner in the Alberni Valley. I previously served two terms as a city councillor and was elected as Beaver Creek area director in 2011.
My main interest at the time was the water system and the referendum deciding its future.
I and staff of the regional district and the water advisory board have worked to provide a compliant water system at the lowest possible price to the residents.We now have a new reservoir, with reclorination system, a new pump station, a new main on Strick Road, a new waterworks work office and two newer service trucks—all at very low cost to the district.
The water system has to be a sustainable system that we and our children can depend on and afford; this continues to be my goal as we go forward.
Other key concerns are maintaining our excellent fire department, planning for future parks and trails and controlling the regional district’s overhead cost.
I hope the job that I have done will earn your support.
