The Tribune asked candidates running in the municipal, regional, and School District 27 election a few questions about themselves and their platforms.

We asked the following:

• What position are you running for?

• Why are you running for it?

• What do you see as the top three issues to address in your community?

• How do you propose to tackle them?

Candidates in the area, including those who have been acclaimed, were invited to participate for free

and were given a maximum word limit of 275 words to answer the questions above.

The following are the answers we received from participating candidates:

Ted Hlokoff

1. What position are you running for? My name is Ted Hlokoff and I am running for CRD director of Area J.

2. Why are you running for it? I have decided to run because it’s more productive to do something about issues bothering me and my neighbours, rather than just complain about them.

3. What do you see as the top three issues to address in your community? Our area has seen jobs and tourist numbers decreasing over the last several years and that is destroying our economy.

I own Anahim Lake Trading and this concerns me greatly.

4. How do you propose to tackle them? I will use my position as CRD director to promote tourism and jobs.

Being in local government, I will work with other levels of government towards bringing back some of that economic prosperity.

I think that it should be easy to contact the regional area director to express concerns.

I am posting my phone number and e-mail address to make contacting me easy.

I feel that it is important for the region’s director to take the people’s problems and concerns to the CRD.

I saw property taxes go up, but never saw the reason why.

I believe that taxes need to be controlled and changes need to be reported so that residents know what they’re getting for their money.

Vote for Ted Hlokoff on Nov 19.
