District of Hope: Steberl, Matt - Council candidate

Matt Steberl

What is your background or political experience?

I’ve grown in Hope for the last 17 years. I’m 22 years old and I’m married. I come from a Christian home that values trust and accountability. I’m young, I represent a different generation of thinking. I’ve grown up around contractors, carpenters, mechanics, and tow truck drivers, the back bone of Hope.

 

What are the most pressing issues facing Hope?

Each voting member is entitled to a say in every decision the council and the mayor make. I want to offer to the town of Hope the confidence to stand up to the giants in our community and to say “NO” or to say “YES.”

 

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

I’m married and it will be my duty as a father to create a healthy, safe and positive environment. I would like to see our rec centre packed Sunday to Saturday, offering all kinds of affordable programs to our community. My dream is to see young teenagers hanging out with adults, helping our older generation.

 

Why should people vote for you?

I want to put the unity back into community, I want to better our town and be held accountable to my actions. I want more businesses so that residents pay lower taxes and more jobs are around. I want to one day help develop a transit system that links us with the big cities.
