Port Hardy: John Tidbury

We need more information in order to look at both sides of this issue.

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. We need more information in order to look at both sides of this issue. The homeowners, who will be affected, need to know how they will benefit from the installation of water meters.  It would be nice to know the base line and the rates for water usage.. I believe this is an important issue and one that should not be decided by council, but taken to referendum so the people of  Port Hardy can decide.

2. I still believe that six is a good number. It provides diversity and a broader outlook on issues that matter, which should make for better decision making.

3. If we wish to attract people to our community we need to have the amenities to keep them here. If we want the town to grow, pools, arenas, schools and hospitals are essential. The cost of running recreational facilities needs to be covered in the most cost effective way without making them inaccessible.  They contribute to the overall enjoyment of living in the North Island.

4. My family and I are long time members of the North Island. I am an active member of the community and involved in many different groups. If elected  you  can expect hard work, experience and dedication.  I am interested in seeing the town grow through industry, resources and tourism. Jobs are very important to me. I would like to show the world that we are open for business providing the proposal meets environmental standards. I look forward to working as a member of a team to help Port Hardy move forward.
