Mayoral candidate: Janet Dorward, District of Port Hardy

District of Port Hardy: Dorward, Janet — Mayor Candidate

Janet Dorward

I am seeking the position of Mayor of Port Hardy. I have the passion, commitment, experience, and skills to carry Port Hardy into the future. Through my experience as a current Port Hardy Councillor and my management experience in the insurance industry, I have proven to be a results-driven, effective leader who can communicate well with our community as well as all levels of government. I welcome the opportunity to engage in dialogue with community groups and hear about the needs that the residents of Port Hardy hold as important.

My commitment to Port Hardy is unparalleled — I was born, raised, and brought up my family here; I continue to enjoy every aspect of our community. This is a town where together we will continually develop, meet challenges, and improve. My only agenda is that of service to our community.

A challenge currently facing Port Hardy is internet service that is either too slow or not available. Making true high-speed internet connectivity available to every property in Port Hardy is a priority — we need internet to communicate, conduct business, and enjoy life. While the fibre optic line will be connected in the coming months and provide improved service to many, our infrastructure will still need to be improved to ensure that high-speed internet service is available to every person and business in Port Hardy, including our harbours and the outer reaches of our community.

Also important are improving recycling options, ensuring the availability of health care services, and continually looking for economic opportunities. I look forward to working collaboratively with the new council team on these issues.

My door is always open. Our future. Your choice. Let’s do this.
