City of Port Alberni: Cindy Solda - Mayoral candidate

  • Oct. 22, 2014 4:00 p.m.

I know I have the experience, leadership and integrity that will be needed to keep our community moving forward in a time of transition.

During my 13 years as your city councillor, I have built relationships with leaders and government officials outside of our community. I believe I have the support of many of these individuals and can count on these positive relationships to help keep the Alberni Valley progressing towards a bright future.

We need to reduce taxes and build healthier relationships and communication with our partners and other levels of government. We need to first look after our aging infrastructure.

We need to encourage and promote opportunities for our youth, to find meaningful employment in our community to ensure they want to live here along with retirees and that our infrastructure can support them without being a drain on taxes.

We need to work at getting more businesses and industry into our community that in turn will create employment. We also need to promote tourism.

Any action we take should follow guidelines: sustainability, impact on health (environmental and personal), and long- term benefits. We should not forget the past but we need to move forward and do what is best for our city’s future.

I want to continue to set priorities to ensure that we move forward to become the vibrant, healthy, sustainable community that we all would like.
