qathet Regional District Electoral Area E candidate: Andrew Fall

Electoral Area E includes Lasqueti Island and surrounding islands. Two candidates are campaigning to fill the position as regional director. Both were asked to submit a short bio and tell residents why they deserve support in the general election on Saturday, October 20.

Here is Andrew Fall's reply:

The most important election issue for the Lasqueti regional director is about how important decisions are made. If elected, I will:

Consult: Ensure meaningful dialog and consultation before major decisions are made, and hold public meetings to identify our shared interests (which include values and needs); Represent: Stand up for community interests; and Engage: Work together with mutual respect to meet the interests of each electoral area, City of Powell River and qRD.

These three steps are crucial to enable a regional director to support community interests while also meeting the requirements of the regional district.

I have previous local government experience as a municipal councillor in District of Highlands 2005 to 2008. I have also been actively involved in the Lasqueti community, including president, Lasqueti Community Association; chair, Lasqueti Advisory Planning Commission; and co-organizer of Lasqueti Fall Fair.
