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

Three candidates are vying for the position as director for qathet Regional District Electoral Area A, which will be filled 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?

My name is Todd Habekost and I am running for director of Area A.

I moved to Savary Island in 2017 from Vancouver and have been a realtor in Powell River and on Savary Island since 2018. During the past five years I have seen a lot of newcomers move into the qathet Regional District and believe the entire region is poised to experience significant growth.

My main reason for running is I think we need a forward-thinking plan to direct the changes that may happen due to increased population and tourism. I want us to be in a position to welcome new residents and visitors to Area A, while retaining the character of our communities.

To achieve this I would work collaboratively with the regional board in proactive planning for the following: solid waste management and recycling; transportation for both roads and marine with a further emphasis on active transportation corridors such as bike/pedestrian routes, providing connectivity throughout the district including the islands; proper parking in Lund to support a safe thriving community; affordable housing to attract a younger demographic interested in working; and emergency services. Thank you.
