Council candidate: Aaron Frost, Town of Port McNeill

Town of Port McNeill: Frost, Aaron — council candidate

  • Nov. 5, 2014 10:00 a.m.

Aaron Frost

I am running for one of the four seats on Council in the Port McNeill Civic Election.

For those of you that do not know me, I grew up in Port McNeill including my wife, and we have raised our three daughters here. I have worked my entire career here in Port McNeill, where I am currently employed by a locally owned business.

I was an elected councilor for two terms (6 years) from 2005-2011, but took the last election term off to concentrate on my career in Health and Safety as well as the growth of the Royal Canadian Marine Search & Rescue station based here in Port McNeill.

We were asked to provide some of our top priorities for the upcoming 4-year term. There are many issues facing our community, however, my top priority is to work with our new council and mayor through the departure of our longtime mayor Gerry Furney. Gerry was a distinguished mayor and has done so many meritable things for our community. Now we look to the future, and change is inevitable. I want to ensure that this change is carefully planned, transparent and meaningful for everyone in our community.

I enjoyed my previous terms on council and collaborating with all of our community groups for the initiation and promotion of new projects and sustaining growth. With your support in the November election, we can continue to promote positive advancement for the betterment of our community.
