James Fougere

What is your background or political experience?

I have volunteered with the board of directors of the Lytton Chamber of Commerce, the Canyon Strategy Committee, Vancouver Coast & Mountain Tourism & Community Tourism Foundations, Boston Bar/North Bend volunteer fire department, soccer coach, cub & scout leader,  and developed a small guest ranch to raise our family and create employment by bringing tourism into the community.

 

What are the most pressing issues facing the area?

Growth is the most pressing issue facing the area. Without growth the community cannot move forward.

 

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

If elected, my main priority as area director would be to be available to any community members that may require assistance to work with the Fraser Valley Regional District to develop their property, business or any other issues to move our community forward.

 

Why should people vote for you?

As a concerned citizen of the future of our community, I believe we need change. If elected, it will give me the opportunity to assist residents to develop their ideas and prosper. My activities as your community director and that of the FVRD in regards to the area will be documented, made available and be accessible to any community member at a community designated location.
