Terry Raymond

What is your background or political experience?

Area A director from 1995-2008. I served four years as chair of the Fraser Valley Regional District, three years as vice-chair, three years as electoral area directors representative on the UBCM executive and chair of their Aboriginal Relations Committee for three years. I also was chair of Hope and District Recreation Commission for 11 years and director on the Municipal Finance Authority for four years.

 

What are the most pressing issues facing the area?

As with most small rural communities in British Columbia, jobs are a big issue. Just as important is ensuring that services that are presently provided in our community are not only kept here but are enhanced.

 

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

I want to know what the priorities of the people of Area A are, not mine, theirs, then work on how we, working together, can achieve them.

 

Why should people vote for you?

I will promise only one thing, and that is I will work hard representing our communities and by working together we can strive to achieve the priorities that “they” (community members) have set for our area.
