Regional District candidate: Pat Horgan, Area ‘C’

Regional District of Mount Waddington: Horgan, Pat — Area 'C' Director candidate

Pat Horgan

My name is Pat Horgan and I want to be the next Area C director. I have lived in Area C — Nimpkish Heights — for more than 20 years. In my time here, I have served my community as a representative on the Advisory Planning Committee, chair of the Board of Variance, and a director on the board for North Island College. Currently, I work at North Island Crisis and Counselling Society and connect with people from all communities within Area C. These experiences have allowed me the opportunity to both hear the concerns and participate in the possible resolutions for our community members.

To problem solve, communication is key. I believe communication is my strength. Communication needs to flow from the Regional District out to the areas. This way, all of our citizens will hear and know current issues and how those issues may impact on their lives. Another important part of communication is advocacy. The role of the Area C director should certainly include taking citizens’ concerns to the regional board table.

We live in a very diverse area. Area C includes Quatsino, Coal Harbour, Tsulquate, Fort Rupert, Victoria Lake, Hyde Creek, and Nimpkish Heights. The area C representative needs to be prepared to visit, connect, hear and then represent each of the communities in Area C.  I am prepared to make those connections and commit to regular communication and representation at the regional board. I hope I have earned your support and you will elect me as your next Area C representative.
