Donna Kropp

What is your background or political experience?

I offer several years of experience serving on council, as well as serving as a volunteer in our community for almost 20 years on various boards, such as Park Street Manor, Hope Brigade Days, Chamber of Commerce, as well as being a liaison for many community boards. Some examples: Hope Community Services, Hope Ratepayers, and Fraser Valley Regional Library, just to name a few.

 

What are the most pressing issues facing Hope?

We need sustainable jobs, light industry (like Nestle Waters for example) with good track records to expand and consider Hope as a solution. We have a great corridor for moving goods and highways surrounding us make us a great choice for warehouse operations. We could also use more services for our seniors. We must continue to support transportation for folks.

 

If elected, what would be your main priority as councillor?

I would help the new council to transition and continue to be an advocate for citizens of Hope. I would bring some new policies to the table, encourage a business friendly District Hall, help staff with tools to welcome the public, and work for a common goal with council. My main priority would be to bring positive changes to benefit our community.

 

Why should people vote for you?

I will do my best to be honest, transparent and forward thinking. I love Hope and I have experience to offer, which helps when making difficult decisions. I do not “rubber stamp” decisions. I am committed to do my part for you. I am not afraid to speak on your behalf, I will continue to be a strong voice for transparency.
