qathet Regional District Electoral Area C candidate: Clay Brander

Electoral Area C includes Stillwater and Saltery Bay, Black Point, Lang Bay, Kelly Creek and areas from Whalen Road to Jervis Inlet.

Each was asked to submit a short bio and tell residents why they deserve support in the general election on Saturday, October 20.

I’m 47 years old and have worked in a wide variety of capacities, including being a volunteer math teacher in Africa, the centre director of a non-governmental organization in Japan, and a mechanical engineer in Powell River.

I’ve also been part of the Sunshine Music Festival for 17 years, served on the local Property Assessment Review Panel, and am currently a small business owner. I believe these experiences have given me the skills necessary for the position of Electoral Area C director.

Four topics that are often mentioned to me are domestic water security, storm water runoff, land use, and the need to establish a land acquisition fund. All four have to do with protection: protecting our water, protecting our homes and property, protecting our area from uncontrolled development, and protecting the environment for future generations. All are important issues that deserve our attention.
