Council candidate: Debbie Perkovich, District of Port Hardy

District of Port Hardy: Perkovich, Debbie— council candidate

Debbie Perkovich

I have been a resident of Port Hardy since 1964. I grew up and graduated here, and have raised my five children here, three of which still call this home. We supported our family by working in the fishing, logging and mining industries. I currently run my own small bookkeeping service for employment.

I decided to run for Council because I have the time and opportunity. I would like to have a part in the future of Port Hardy; much hard work has been put in by many people over the years and I would like to contribute what I can at this time.

One of the biggest challenges facing Port Hardy is economic stability. Without a strong, stable economy all things suffer. Good employment opportunities would attract families to live here in Port Hardy. With a larger population some of our other problems could be eased. Increased business and population could mean increased tax revenues, better education opportunities in our schools, and increased health care. Council needs to focus on bringing business to Port Hardy and supporting our businesses already established. We need to advertise that Port Hardy is an inviting place to do business.

With my bookkeeping/accounting background I understand the importance of balancing budgets. Council needs to have a sustainable, long-term vision that benefits the community long-term. If elected I would work hard to fulfill my role and responsibilities as Councillor.
