Village of Alert Bay: Williams, Duncan — council candidate

Duncan Williams

I am running for councillor for the village of Alert Bay because I feel I have the vision and determination to be able to make a difference in the future of Alert Bay.

I was born in Alert Bay and have lived here all my life.   I have managed the Hardware store for 20 years.  This position puts me in contact with a significant portion of our population on a daily basis.  Because of this I feel I have a very good understanding of the nature of this community.  As councillor I want to continue to listen to your concerns and work with you to improve Alert Bay and make it a better place to live for today’s residents and future generations.

I believe that, by working together, we can improve the economy of Alert Bay which in turn will attract more people who would want to live and work here.  I support business and private enterprise and I want to make it easy and attractive for new business to start up.  I think a larger population with more businesses will also attract more tourists to come and visit our island which would aid in our economic development.

I have a good knowledge of business management and I will bring that to council with me.

I am committed to serving Alert Bay and as a member of village council I will be approachable and accountable for my decisions.
