My name is John Buckley and I am seeking re-election for councillor in Harrison Hot Springs.
My wife Karen and I have been married for 38 years and have two grown sons. I was employed
for 26 years in the Pipeline and Terminals department of Imperial Oil in Calgary. I was in charge of crude oil and finished products distribution from British Columbia to Ontario via pipelines. My career taught me to be an extremely responsible decision maker, able to react calmly and rationally in high pressure situations. It was during that time that I learned how important it is to be able to work effectively with others and to be a good listener.
I am community minded and have been a very active volunteer in Harrison since our move here four years ago.
I try to lead by example and believe my duties as a councillor should not end in council chambers but should be carried into the community I represent.
I have enjoyed my first term as councillor and saw the completion of many substantial projects in our village.
Some of my personal goals are to remain fiscally responsible, have total transparency in our day to day operations, to address aging and new infrastructure issues and to advocate for local businesses, to name a few.
I am eager to continue working toward completing on going and future projects and would like to welcome you to attend our All Candidates Meeting in Harrison at the Memorial Hall on Oct. 28th at 7PM where I will be able to speak in more detail about what my future goals and initiatives are.
I am hopeful that the voters of Harrison Hot Springs will support me in the upcoming election on Nov. 15th.
