Kitimat is in the spotlight, with the Alcan modernization, the LNG project, increase in small businesses, and promises of other economic development, promises of Creating sustainable employment.
The community needs to focus on support for the projects going forward, maintain an open positive public image.
Some will view this as conforming to the corporate mind set, but in order to be successful we need to work well together, and have a combined interest. Industries, as all businesses, need to be financial stable, and we need our environmental issues address, social responsibilities, and in particular health and safety issues.
We need a common ground with all levels of government, first Nations, industries, development projects, communities, but most important with each member of council.
THAT COMMON GROUND IS KITIMAT.
I look forward to working and prioritizing Kitimatís wish list, west side road development, governmental responsible for haisla blvd.
Waterfront access, seeking THE Kitimat port, Radley park maintenance. New municipal office, new firewall, expediting improvements in health and welfare.
We need a council which makes good choices regarding our community, and represent the community to their fullest. I Look forward to being part of the new council creating a clear vision, prioritizing Kitimatís wish list, establishing goals, identifies roadblocks, implementing an aggressive plan to overcome them, and jointly, establish steps to succeed. FOR all in KITIMAT.
