Kellen Zerr

What is your background or political experience?

I’m involved in real estate with my father and two brothers where we conduct frequent meetings. I also have a background in logic and reasoning, whilst using the scientific method. I studied these subjects in depth, and they are important in how we communicate with each other. I come from a large family, and I’m the kitchen supervisor at Triple O’s Restaurant.

 

What are the most pressing issues facing Hope?

The most pressing issues are losing our businesses, and young people moving away.

 

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

I would push for bright signs advertising Hope and who we are. I would push for industries in manufacturing/warehousing to expand the borders of our town.

 

Why should people vote for you?

I am a young man with a fresh perspective. I have pragmatic ideas with practical solutions. I represent the young people who are told they will never buy real estate. We will find a way, and we will be the architects of a new way.
