Eli Leyland is one of 18 candidates running to fill the six City of Powell River councillor positions in the upcoming municipal election.

Eighteen candidates have entered the race to fill six City of Powell River Council seats. The Peak asked each candidate the following question:

Why should voters choose you to be a City of Powell River councillor?

Here is the response from Eli Leyland:

I believe in social good, in improving the greatest number of lives possible, and not serving a single individuals’ self-interests.

This is exactly what I stand for; I am serving the people, not myself. 

Community values were instilled in me throughout my upbringing and those values are what drive me to give back to my community now. If I am granted the opportunity to be city councillor, I know that I can make a difference and bring forth the ideas of my community.

I would love to see more affordable options for housing for our current and future generations, increased resources for those struggling with mental health and addiction, lower tax rates and an MRI machine to cut down on travel expenses and time for those who need one.

I am not running for myself, but to represent the ideals and values of the people of Powell River.

If I am elected, I can promise that I will work faithfully to help improve this wonderful place that we are all so lucky to call home.
