Area director: Forman, Lloyd

Fraser Valley Regional District (Area A): Forman, Lloyd - Area director candidate

  • Nov. 6, 2014 6:00 p.m.

What is your background or political experience?

I have spent over 30 years involved with local government, when elected and when not elected. I am very passionate about our ability locally to bring pressure to bear on the governing authorities. Having spent the same time operating a small business has given me the fundamentals of economics.

 

What are the most pressing issues facing the area?

The economy and the jobs that come with it. I worry about us losing our small business services, so I’ve been working on a very creative plan to bring us 20 jobs, while we wait for the big one on the mill site. Meanwhile I have identified funding to put in flush toilets and a doggie park for travellers.

 

If elected, what would be your main priority as area director?

If elected I will continue with two or three projects that I have on the go, and I will continue to be unemployed so that I can engage myself fully to local government, without any possible conflict of interest that an employer might bring.

 

Why should people vote for you?

I would like your vote so I can continue my tradition of open government with town hall meetings that bring an understanding that the only real problems in a democracy are the single issue people. We need to help one another with our understanding that nothing happens in isolation, everything is connected.
