Jason Lennox is one of three candidates seeking to represent qathet Regional District Electoral Area A as its director.

Three candidates are running to be director of qathet Regional District Electoral Area A, which will be decided on general election day (October 15), including Todd Habekost, Jason Lennox and Mace Mowbray.

The Peak asked each candidate the following question:

Why should voters choose you to serve as director for Area A?

Here is the response from Jason Lennox:

I have the tools, character and commitment to effectively represent all citizens of Area A and qRD.

My family and I are from here and understand intimately how extraordinary our region is.

Community and service have been important to me since I was young. Some examples: Youth Activity Council, Northside VFD for several years, helping build the Lund Gazebo.

I’ve met many as a first responder, then paramedic for several years with BCAS and hospital emergency department. Those were special years where I truly valued helping people.

I have experience being in unions and on their executive, in front line supervision and now as a senior manager with Paper Excellence, responsible for safety in their western Canadian operating mills.

These experiences gave me knowledge and skills that will stand me in good stead as director.

Area A is vast, yet concentrated smaller areas within that are unique in both challenges and opportunities, from Savary and Hernando to Okeover and Lund, northside of Tla’amin Nation to the remote backcountry and Desolation Sound, all intimately connected to the Tla’amin people and lands.

Key: Building on the existing relationship between qRD and Tla’amin.

My goal is to achieve balance among diverse interests and develop locally developed strategies to tackle challenges and maximize opportunities. How? Connecting/collaborating.
