City of Port Alberni: Ted McGill - Council candidate

  • Nov. 5, 2014 6:00 a.m.

I am running for the position of city councillor.

I am a husband, father of four grown children, four grandchildren and a volunteer. Like most members of the community, I have identified the biggest issue to be poor financial management specifically taxation. Port Alberni spends beyond their means and the burden is put on the tax payers. This must stop, I will work hard promoting new revenue ideas, making reductions and voting no when we can’t afford a proposal. Being a young retiree, am willing and able to dedicate the required time, to ensure that every issue is researched and debated to the best of my ability. Utilizing the analytical skills obtained from various Police institutions and training facilities, I believe I have the tools to understand the pros and cons prior to making a decision. ‘Every Action has an Equal and Opposite Reaction’ – Sir Isaac Newton’s law of physics. Finding the balance is the key to successful change. I will promote and support initiatives that creates employment or improves the quality of life for all members of our community. I will strive to make Port Alberni the City of choice on Vancouver Island. Actions are stronger than words vote Ted McGill I will not let you down.
