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 Mace Mowbray, Jason Lennox and Todd Habekost.
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 Mace Mowbray:
Area A needs a voice that will represent its concerns and needs fairly and accurately. I’m dedicating my time and future to being that person.
If you live in Area A and would like to see someone responsive and invested in the community in a way that facilitates communication and sustainable change, I am the person to vote for.
I do not have much experience in politics or the form in which our local government makes decisions, but I am hungry for knowledge, and with that knowledge I can help educate my communities.
We have an opportunity to make real change by electing someone like me with the drive to learn, curiosity to ask questions and passion to put the needs of the community and environment before my own. I do not have answers or solutions to our problems but I do have the ability and time to bring people together and collaborate to find sustainable solutions that work for everyone.
If you agree that our privacy, sustainability and quality of life is worth talking about and fighting for, elect me, someone young, with fresh ideas, sustainability in mind, and the energy to pursue effective change.
I hope you see your values reflected in mine and elect me to be your representative.
