Electoral Area B includes properties outside of City of Powell River on Covey, Nootka and Tanner streets, Paradise Valley and areas east of the city out to Whalen Road. Tla’amin Nation lands are not included in Area B. Its three candidates were asked to submit a short bio and tell residents why they deserve support in the general election on Saturday, October 20.
Here is the response from Alan Rebane:
I have been the acting regional director for Area B for the past three years. Area B has not seen any significant tax increases; I am the right person to keep your taxes on a level playing field.
I believe in taking the issues to the residents, for example, the Powell River Recreation Complex referendum. I argued in favour of the referendum because you as a taxpayer should get to make that decision.
As your representative I will work to keep you informed, listen and address your issues. I will be your voice of reason and hope you give me the opportunity to represent you in the next four years when you vote on October 20.
