Council candidate: Leightan Wishart, District of Port Hardy

District of Port Hardy: Wishart, Leightan — council candidate

Leightan Wishart

I am running for councillor because I care about Port Hardy and want to see it improve. I want to make sure council is not conducting some of its important business behind closed doors (in camera) which is extremely inappropriate. I want to make sure decisions made by council are open and transparent. I want to make sure the decisions made by council are in the best interest of the community as a whole.

I have been on the school board for 12 years and, although it is different, in many ways the fundamental principles of operating the business end are the same. I have a good understanding of the workings of government and believe that would make me an asset to council.

I think there should be a connection between local government and the school district, and I could be the conduit.

Having just retired, I am now able to dedicate more of my time to both the School Board and Port Hardy District Council.
