City of Port Alberni: Monty Mearns - Council candidate

  • Nov. 7, 2014 6:00 p.m.

 

I am running for a city council position in the upcoming  election. I have been representing working families my entire adult life and bring a rich experience in the field of industrial relations.

I have nurtured working relationships with numerous industries large and small local and foreign owned.This line of work has exposed me as well to working with all levels of governments, their ministries and agencies. The concept of public meetings and working in the public’s eye is not new to me. I do function well with people.

I am not opposed to industrial activity in the confines of the community providing all stakeholders are consulted and standards are met.

I support the need for a long-term protected water supply, not just a timber swap. Seniors, must have an assurance of enough long-term care. And affordable housing facilities.

The distribution of the tax burden seems unfair to the residential land owners.

We must introduce initiatives for McLean Mill to become  financially self-sufficient.

Provide parameters to the community forest to develop local strategies with others to utilize logs locally not exporting abroad.

No to a second  crossing and no to expenditures to Canal Beach. Balance budgets and examine for afficiencies remove duplication and redundancies by way of retirement  initiatives.

The city is looking for transparency and sincerity not the  same old. There appears to be to much done at in camera meetings.

I am running my own independent campaign please vote for me.
