Regional District candidate: Andrew Hory, Area ‘C’

Regional District of Mount Waddington: Hory, Andrew — Area 'C' Director candidate

Andrew Hory

Hello Area C:

It has been an honour being your representative at the Regional District. Area C encompasses seven communities — being director of this broad area has meant learning to listen and letting the communities lead as they know best what they need. I believe it is not my job to promise you things I think you might want, or that I want, but to listen to and act on your desires.

If re-elected I will continue to fight for rural interests; For example, if the amalgamation of Hyde Creek into Port McNeill is raised again I will fight to make sure there is a referendum so democracy gets to decide the future, not special interest groups or municipalities.

Communities that were not eligible for recycling may reconsider a garbage service in order to become eligible — again, this is a decision that should be made by the community; with everyone understanding the tax implications before voting.

If re-elected, I will continue to lobby for junctions to be put into the broadband cable as it goes by our rural zones so when possible those communities can easily plug in.

I will continue on the transit committee to ensure our excellent system continues to improve. Transit has become vital for rural areas on the North Island, and is especially relevant for Area C.

In conclusion, your voice matters. If re-elected, I will continue to seek the will of the communities of Area C and work to deliver those desires with clarity and transparency.

Thank you for your support.
