Village of Port Alice: Brackett, Marc — council candidate

Attracting and keeping citizens requires retention and selective addition of services. These must be balanced in an environment of rising costs and stagnant revenues. I am running for re-election as a Port Alice Councillor and will bring my experience and ideas to work constructively with our council to find that balance. There are so many potential priorities, from infrastructure like sewage and the deflection dikes to high-profile services like internet. Connectivity is on a lot of people’s minds lately, and is now an economic development gate where we cannot afford to fall behind our neighbours. Anyone can make promises, but it is in the development of solutions and balancing of those priorities where hard work is required. I have that drive and will focus on results.

At the same time as local government’s responsibilities grow we are mandated to less-frequent elections and see decreasing citizen engagement. My unique commitment is to provide 21st century tools to reach out to Port Alice multiple times per year, not every four years. Together we will shape our community, short-term in funding decisions and long-term through the Community Plan.

 

Please vote for me, Marc Brackett.
