Thanks to outgoing councillor Jackson

Harrison Hot Springs resident 'very discouraged by the political process'

Resulting from the last election, Allan Jackson, councilor, serving Harrison Hot Springs for 9 consecutive years was not reelected. Last election he was at the top of polls. This has made many people wondering how some people could not see the dedication that Alan has given to this Village.

Having regularly attended council meetings, I  have witnessed the impact Alan has had at these meetings.

Allan was the anchor on the council. His many years of financial expertise has served this village well. For example, Allan initiated the process of acquiring the 2% hotel tax which has enabled the council to extensively enhance the Esplanade area, including the beach. More improvements are yet to come.

He read about and investigated many issues. One project that is most important is the new water plant as compared to having more wells in Harrison. These are just a few items that he went to great length to gather the information required to make the best decisions suited for Harrison.

Allan has worked tirelessly, researching, participating on committees, volunteering in numerous events in Harrison. The Community in Blooms Committee, chaired by Alan, won many awards, even in the National contest. Of course, there are other projects that he has been successfully involved in.

However, after writing this, we feel very discouraged by the political process. It appears that some people do not have the insight to consider Harrison’s interests first rather than their own agenda.

To lose such a respected and knowledgeable gentleman from the council is very disturbing.

We wish to thank you, Allan, so much for all your positive contributions which have affected everyone who happily live in Harrison Hot Springs.

Sincerely,

Ted & Marg Doman
