Town of Port McNeill: MacDonald, Graham — council candidate

Graham MacDonald

I have lived in Port McNeill since 1971 and have worked as a self-employed mechanic since 1978.

I am running for council because I feel we need to focus on ourselves, learn what we want and how to get it. We have been waiting for someone or something to save us. I would work on re-empowering the people and establishing a strong sense of community.

One of the most important issues for me is the marine industry and tourism which have been growth industries since the 80s.

I will do everything I can to encourage a more diverse economy. I love to talk to people, hear their ideas and try to resolve problems.

In the end I am a team player and look forward to working with others to create a healthier and more prosperous community.

Graham MacDonald
