Glen Ogren

What is your background or political experience?

My wife and our family moved to Hope 10 years ago. I have owned my own business for five years now. For two years I was the president of the Hope & District Chamber of Commerce, to which I am currently a member.


What are the most pressing issues facing Hope?

The biggest issue facing Hope is the increase in taxes being collected versus the services being received.


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

My first priority is to bring forth a motion to have an audit of practices of district hall. This is to ensure the levels of service for a community our size are being met and where possible efficiencies and synergies are being utilized.


Why should people vote for you?

With my business and my family, I have much invested in Hope. I want to work with others to ensure the vibrancy of this community is achieved through collaboration, long-term vision, and fiscal responsibility.
