Port Hardy: Al Huddlestan

I do not support the installation of residential water meters at this time.

1. Do you support the installation of water meters and if yes, who should pay for them?

2. Because Port Hardy has experienced a marked decline in population in recent years should we cut the number of councillors from six to four and why or why not?

3. More than 50 per cent of Port Hardy pool users are from outside the district yet we fund the entire operation. How can we recoup some of the costs?

4. Why should people vote for you?

1. I do not support the installation of residential water meters at this time.  Our priority should be replacement of supply pipes that are prone to leaks after 35 years in service.

2.  I believe Port Hardy is about to see a steady increase in population due to developing opportunities in the resource and tourism sectors.  With six councillors, we have the benefit of a broader cross section of interests and expertise.

3.  Although all pool users contribute to the operation and maintenance costs, the fact is that revenues don’t even come close to expenses.  It’s time to negotiate maintenance and capital funding contribution agreements with neighbouring communities who make frequent use of the facilities.

4.  I am committed to ensuring we get the maximum benefit from every tax dollar.  We need councillors who are dedicated and passionate about the North Island.  Having served on council for 13 years, I have a deep appreciation for my town and the people who make it a great place to live.  Your current mayor and council have made great progress on many fronts.  Much needed upgrades to our marine facilities, roads, sidewalks, sewer, and water systems to name a few have contributed to enhancing our community.
