An inclusive place for all to enjoy

Three questions for city council candidates – David Minato

1. My vision for Campbell River is a unique coastal community defined by its geography and its people.

It would be an inclusive place for all people to enjoy. A place where children, teenagers, adults and seniors can enthusiastically say “I live in Campbell River.”

It would be open to the world; as a destination known for its natural beauty, rich and cultural diversity.

 

2. My family values and experiences make me a good choice for council. My strengths are:

I enjoy satisfaction from doing things that benefit people.

I seek creative ways to succeed.

I like to partner with others to accomplish things.

I identify problems and implement appropriate solutions.

I value people and hold them in high regard.

I am sensitive to the feelings of others.

I forge a bridge of understanding and mutual support.

 

3. Communication is a process by which parties transfer meaningful information and is fulfilled when the receiver has understanding of the message. A strong mayor and council will have a unified message to deliver to the city manager. It will be conveyed by city staff through the appropriate medium and be seen in the tangible results that follow. Therefore good communications begins with council and is a reflection of community wants and needs.

As a councilor I will be open to all forms of communication be they written, conversational or electronic.
