City that cooperates and unites on common goals

Three questions for mayoral candidates – Ziggy Stewart

1. I want Campbell River to be seen as a community that cooperates and unites on common goals and works together to achieve them.

I want to see a City Hall that is respectful of tax dollars and of the needs of its citizens.  I want to see a City Hall that is open for business to create employment opportunities for all ages, education and skill levels. I want to see residential opportunities created in our downtown core and a fully functioning acute care hospital.

 

2. Six years ago I ran for City Council to make a difference. I have asked the tough questions when others did not.

I will build a team that is respected and gets the most out of every tax dollar.  We will be open for business and we will set achievable goals for our three year term. I will work to build relationships with our First Nations neighbours. Whenever possible we should partner with investors and community organizations to build a better Campbell River. I am as comfortable in a ditch with a shovel as I am in the boardroom with a suit and tie and I think I have a better understanding of the challenges facing families and businesses than any of the other mayoral candidates. This connection gives me the desire, the courage, the integrity and the common sense to serve as your mayor and to provide leadership to your council to really make that difference.

 

3. Communication should be about responding to people, asking questions and providing answers.

Communication should not only be through press releases. I will assign councillor portfolios for various areas of responsibility to provide a clear communication link between council and the general public.

My door will always be open to our residents, our businesses and to potential investors.
