Dusty Smith

What is your background or political experience?

I have no current political background but hope to change that. I am actively involved in different things around the community like Hope Fire Department, Hope Motorsports Group, and Hope Adult Hockey League. I run a heavy duty mechanic shop with four employees. I am 25 years of age with lots of follow through.

 

What are the most pressing issues facing Hope?

Liveable jobs to sustain a comfortable lifestyle and jobs that are year-round, not just summer jobs. I represent a generation that is slowly declining in this community and it’s a concern that not enough young families are wanting to stay or move here. Infrastructure in some areas is on the decline and needs to be attended to more.

 

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

My main priority if voted in is to try to get the most bang for the taxpayers buck on anything we do. A lot of people see this community waste money where they don’t see fit but if it is grant money or taxpayers money we as council and the district need to better communicate with the taxpayers of Hope.

 

Why should people vote for you?

Vote for me because I am a young and determined individual that stands my ground on what I believe. I am good to work with. And I have an absolute love and focus in this community that I would like to get everyone together to have the same love and passion I do and feel for this beautiful place we call home.
