District of Port Hardy: Dugas, Dennis — council candidate

Dennis Dugas

I have been a taxpaying resident of Port Hardy for 43 years and I have just recently retired. For the past 40 years I was an employee for the District of Port Hardy, primarily working in the Public Works /Utilities Department, and for the last eight years as the Capital Projects Coordinator. You could say that I know  Port Hardy’s infrastructure above and below the ground extensively. Therefore, I believe my 40 years of work experience and knowledge  would be a great  asset to the Port Hardy Mayor/Council especially when they are approving O&M

Budgets and Capital Improvement Projects.

As residents of Port Hardy, we all know that we have a number of concerns and issues to deal with over the next 4 years. Just to name a few: Continuing to improve Health Care services, Senior’s housing/assisted living, local post-secondary education/trades training with local businesses, Economic Development initiatives following the Port Hardy’s Official Community Plan, high-speed internet which will help our businesses now and in the future and, last but not least, to maintain our infrastructure and plan for what we will require in the future.

When elected to represent you on Council, you have my word that I am committed to work with you to make Port Hardy a safe and affordable place to live, work and play.

Please vote on November 15 for the Mayor and Councillors who will best represent you.
