Council candidate: Rod Romas, District of Port Hardy

District of Port Hardy: Romas, Rod — council candidate

Rodney Romas

My name is Rod Romas and I’ve been a  member of the community since 1984. Back then our town was alive with spirit and that spirit made me who I am today. I chose to run for council so that I could give something back to my community. I want to bring the spirit back to Port Hardy, I want our children to grow up with the same experiences, I want them to have pride in our community like we all did and still do.

If I am elected, I would like to lobby the government to reinstate our Northern Living Allowance. Life on the North Island comes at a cost; we pay more for everything here. I believe that additional disposable income would encourage families to spend more of their time and money within the community and in return benefit local businesses. I would also seek more community involvement in the major decision-making process. Council is only seven people; we could all benefit from further perspectives.

I know that there will be many other concerns to be addressed; I will only make one promise to the townspeople of Port Hardy and that is to do the best I can. The people that know me the best know me as a little stubborn, a little opinionated and perhaps a little argumentative, especially when I am passionate about something. Let me use those traits to fight for what you want, to express your concerns and to have your voices heard.
