District of Hope: Mohle, Ryan - Council candidate

Ryan Mohle

What is your background or political experience?

My family and I moved to Hope four years ago, bought our first house and want to raise our young family here. I am operations manager for a growing multi-million dollar trailer manufacturing plant. I gained valuable insight and experience by attending the council meetings this last year and am a member of the Hope Ratepayers Association.

 

What are the most pressing issues facing Hope?

Firstly, spending taxpayer money in a fiscally responsible manner should keep the property tax rate comparable to the cost of living index. We need to address our aging infrastructure and promote economic growth to improve our tax base. Good paying jobs, a low property tax and the beauty of our area will encourage people to move to Hope.

 

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

Review all expenditures, set priorities based on smart choices for daily operational requirements and capital projects, paying down the debt and securing a sensible short and long term fiscal vision is the key. Achieving resort municipal status and promoting economic development by supporting AdvantageHOPE will greatly enhance our chances of attracting people to live in our wonderful community.

 

Why should people vote for you?

As a councillor I will stand up and ask thoughtful, insightful questions so I am best able to make well-informed decisions in the best interest of you, the taxpayer moving our community forward. Having attended council meetings for the last year gives me a leg up of valuable experience if elected to council. Thank you for your support.
