Mole: ‘Open, accountable government’

I have put forward my name in the upcoming municipal election, to continue the work I began when I was elected in February 2013.

Over the last 20 months I have pushed for proper process, for clear and consistent communication, and for open and accountable government.

We still have work to do. I would like to see a communications plan that guides us in how we deliver news both internally and externally.

During the coming term, I would like us to come up with some answers to the water issue, to continue the work on the skate park, and to lobby hard for a new school.

In order for us to attract and keep families in our community, we need good jobs and good schools.

I hope to build on the relationship we have with the student union and expand that to other student groups.

I have enjoyed the opportunity to promote our town in my travels through the province.

If elected, I will work hard on sharing the many virtues of Ucluelet, along with the behind the scenes, not so shiny work.

I wish all council and mayoral candidates the very best!
