Council candidate: Susan Spaeti running in District of Kent

District of Kent: Spaeti, Susan - Council Candidate

  • Oct. 16, 2014 3:00 p.m.

My name is Susan Spaeti and I am running for District of Kent Council. I have lived in Agassiz my whole life and graduated from the University of the Fraser Valley with a Bachelor’s Degree. I am married, and together with my husband Benno, we made our home in Agassiz and established a successful construction company. We have two boys, Lukas and Martin, and I am active in their school. I believe it is important to be involved with our youth. I have been the PAC treasurer for the past six years and secured several grants for capital projects at the school. I was also voted as the DPAC rep on the school District’s Budget and Education Committees. For the last five years I have also been a volunteer coach for Agassiz Minor Soccer.

I am a member of the Kent Agricultural Advisory Committee. I believe that we must protect Agricultural Land while balancing the need for businesses in our District. This is to ensure that residents, who live here, can also work here. I volunteer on the Fundraising Committee for the expanded Community Recreation and Cultural Centre. Together we have raised almost $400,000 towards the Centre.

My main priority as Councillor is to ensure that we are financially responsible with our taxpayer’s money. We need to spend wisely and plan for our future. We also need true and open communication between the District and community members. I believe if residents are involved with the matters facing our community, the District as a whole will benefit.

I am a fresh new voice and believe that without change, there is no progress. I am an active community volunteer who is invested in our District for the long term.

I hope that I can count on your support on Nov. 15. Thank you.
