See our way to finding our city’s true spirit

Three questions for city council candidates – Ron Kerr

1. My vision for Campbell River welcomes growth; provides positive opportunities for youth; creates economic security for families; recognizes the contributions of senior citizens; and offers programs to assist those less fortunate.

To reach our potential we must offer job creation and a friendly business environment. This must be the major focus of council. With much hard work and an open City Hall, a positive, progressive council can make Campbell River everything it truly should be.  This way we can see our way to finding our City’s true spirit.

 

2. I came to Campbell River 40 years ago for its business potential and recreational lifestyle. These past 40 years have seen me actively involved on many boards and city commissions, as well as various service clubs and organizations of recreation, arts and culture.

I now have the time and the energy to bring my skill set of experiences and talents, along with a positive attitude to local government.

As a city councillor, I am ready to put my proven teamwork abilities, my business background, my various expertises and my passion, to work for Campbell River.”

 

3. The public must be kept current of the actions of local government.  Failure to do so creates misunderstanding and mistrust.  As a former board member of CRTV that installed the council chamber video system, I believe we can podcast our council meetings and informational sessions on our city website, making them available anytime. Our city website can also be made easier to navigate and access.

The new council, working with local media and other stakeholder groups, must develop strong lines of open communication, along with strong partnerships.  I believe current problems can be acknowledged and resolved while still respecting each viewpoint.
