Council candidate: Sylvia Pranger running in District of Kent

District of Kent: Pranger, Sylvia - Council Candidate

  • Oct. 16, 2014 8:00 p.m.

I am running for Council because I care about our community and believe in what we can do if we work together.  I am actively involved in the community and follow the issues impacting residents.  Here are some of the items that are top of mind with me.

Financial accountability

The municipality needs to be open and accountable with taxpayer’s money.  Operations must be run in a professional, businesslike manner within our means.

Health Services in Agassiz

We need to work with local, regional and provincial agencies to maintain and enhance services in Agassiz

Volunteerism

We need to support and celebrate our volunteer groups who work tirelessly in our community.  They are the “unity” in our community which is so vital to enhancing our quality of life.

Infrastructure

Maintaining the District infrastructure is necessary to ensure services can be delivered to residents in the most cost effective manner.

Valley View Cemetery

Our cemetery should be maintained and managed in a way we are proud of and respects those interred there.

Business Support

Our business community is small and needs to be supported.  It needs to work with Council to ensure it thrives in a way that is best for both businesses and residents.

Green Mountain

Green Mountain is an asset to the District which should be protected.  It will require a committed effort with provincial agencies to ensure a “green zone” is created.

Foster a trust relationship

Residents have lost trust in local government and I feel this needs to be re-established.  Through hard work, civic engagement, respectful dialogue and learning from past mistakes we can foster

this.
