A place where everyone desires to be

Three questions for city council candidates – Ryan Mennie

1. I envision a community that takes care of it’s citizens equally, no matter what age.  Support for our children, making sure all are ready to enter the school system, helping them become our future productive citizens in a city with less crime.  I envision a thriving economy where those who want to raise their families here will have the means to do so. I envision Campbell River being a place where everyone desires to be, not a place that people come from.

2. I’m still the highly positive, motivated and community minded person I was three years ago when I was first voted in. And now I have three years of municipal government experience under my belt to help navigate the financial challenges of the 2012 budget and beyond. Every Tuesday in the council chambers I look for balance and do my best to keep perspective on behalf of the entire community. Albert Einstein sums it up best as to how to tackle the next three years and beyond: “Learn from yesterday.  Live for today.  Hope for tomorrow.”

3. Three years ago I ran specifically to improve communication between City Hall and the community.  We now have a corporate communications strategy, and staff continue to work on ways to improve their messaging and engagement.  This year my word is “clarity.”  Moving forward, I want you to know why something is being done.  This also requires work on your part.  Be prepared to listen.

Most importantly, if you need clarification, go to the source, your council.  Your neighbour may have the best intentions, you may enjoy the heated discussions in the newspaper, but your council has the facts.
