Council Candidate: Allan Jackson running for re-election in Harrison Hot Springs

Village of Harrison Hot Springs: Jackson, Allen - Council Candidate

  • Oct. 24, 2014 5:00 p.m.

My name is Allan Jackson, and I am seeking re-election for another term on the council of the Village of Harrison Hot Springs.

My wife Mary and I moved to Harrison ten years ago and immediately became involved in the Community. My High school education was in Sudbury Ontario and I attended Ryerson in Toronto.

I worked for forty-five years in the banking industry. First elected to council in 2005 I introduced the 2% hotel tax, set up Tourism Harrison, then put the 2% Resort Municipal Initiative in place which has been used to pay for Tourist Related Infrastructure. This included the Plaza, Streetscape, Promenade, Sasquatch Front entrance, children’s playgrounds.

I serve on many committees, Chair Communities in Bloom, Director Fraser Valley Regional Library, Fraser Valley Aboriginal Committee, July First Parade marshall/pet parade, council representative, Harrison Tourism Society.

With your endorsement I look forward to working with you and council to ensure the Sustainability of the beautiful Village of Harrison Hot Springs.

Thank you,

Allan Jackson
