The Next Four Years

John Rice
Director for Area D

Let me start by saying “ Thank You”  to everyone who took the time to vote. It was a good turn out and the results leave it very clear what Area D expects in the next four years.

What an exciting time for Area D and the Strathcona Regional District. Looks like the “Shift in Directions” really caught hold in so many election results.

Three of the four rural Regional Directors have changed in this election presenting us with a new opportunity to make progress. With a new Mayor and mostly new council, for the City of Campbell River, this is an incredible opportunity to sit at the table and get real work done on the Regional Level and for Area D.

I have already had a meeting with SRD today and I will be having meetings this week with my fellow Electoral  Directors. There is certainly new energy and commitment and purpose and I know things will be improving.

The staff at the SRD office are thrilled with the changes that are coming their way and they are ready to help the Directors achieve their goals.

Over the last few months as I knocked on doors it was made very clear to me that people want a variety of things to happen.

People want action on housing, climate change and ecosystem protection, parks & recreation, land use planning, sustainable business development, and truth and reconciliation and they want their voices heard at all steps of the way.

Moving forward, I would like everyone to know that I work for you.  My process will be transparent and while I will be making decisions for the community they will always reflect the best intent for the community.

My first Electoral Meeting is Nov 9th and I do hope people will take the time to view this meeting on YouTube, or better yet attend the meeting in person.

And for those that already have my phone number  250-203-1598 this will be the same number that I can be reached at for all Area D Business.
