David Stewart

Why should you vote David Stewart ?

I am a long-term resident of over 30 years in Port Alice. My wife and I both live and work full time while raising our three wonderful children in this amazing community. I served as councillor for the village of Port Alice in the last term. I am also President of the local Lions club and serve as head coach for minor hockey.

I have seen what this community is capable of as I grew up in a time where there was a pop. of over 1,500 people. My family and I have been working very hard to try and create an environment where families will choose Port Alice to call home.

We are facing many obstacles in the near future, with our pulp mill having a temporary closure affecting many local residents. Our council needs to find a way to help the mill continue to operate successfully and look for ways to support the many displaced workers in need of assistance. Council also needs to look for ways to diversify the local economy so mill shutdowns are less of an impact to the long-term success of the community. Promoting tourism is one avenue and marketing Port Alice as a destination for retirees is another. We need to find a balance of growing families, retirees, tourism and resource-based industry.

I have a passion for Port Alice and this is my home. I feel I am right for

the position of councillor. I will keep pushing forward to make Port Alice a better place for all of us to call home.

Vote David Stewart.
