Randy Priest Candidate For Area “A” Director.

If elected to the Area “A” Director’s position, I would work towards; ensuring property developers are knowledgeable of set-back guidelines for water, septic and public road access, complying with federal and provincial regulations.

Through local area meetings, news articles and printed materials, I will assist residents to become familiar with community planning. Positioning each district within Area “A” to face future needs and demands, yet retaining the freedoms of a rural life style.

To work diligently at maintaining a low tax burden despite rising costs, possible falling land assessments and downloading of services from senior governments.

I will utilize the new community fibre, broadband net-work to maintain contact with residents and take advantage of video conferencing, thus avoiding travel expenses for many meetings.

I will address issues such as fire protection and how best the safety of families be met while meeting the needs of insurance brokers and the B.C. fire regulations.

I would hope to bring improved communication throughout the area, with the Town of Golden and fair equitable representation at the Regional Board table.

I believe in a new commitment working towards our community’s future.
