Fraser Lake: Jantz, Kerry – councillor candidate

 

My name is Kerry Jantz. My wife of 44 years, Connie, and I have two grown children and three grandchildren. We moved to Fraser Lake in 1977 intending on a stay of a couple of years and I find myself still living, working and calling the community home. I came north for a job and stayed for a lifestyle that included opportunity for myself and my family, warm and welcoming neighbours and colleagues, and easy access to the outdoors.

I am seeking the opportunity and honour of serving the citizens of Fraser Lake for a third term as councillor for the village. I bring honesty, integrity and solid communication skills to the position and come to the council table without hidden agendas or inherited biases to slant my views. I am a good listener and independent thinker, available, approachable and always willing to hear and consider all opinions and points of view. I believe my council experience will provide continuity in governance in Fraser Lake during these exciting and challenging times of growth and development along the highway 16 corridor.

I intend to focus my energies on services for Fraser Lake and area seniors; from transportation, to affordable and accessible housing, to aging in place services and care. As well, our airport is an asset that has been seriously ignored and must be addressed as part of a strategy for future prosperity. And finally, good governance includes planning and building for the future as well as an energetic and enthusiastic passion for the present. I am committed to strong fiscal management, accountability and planning for a healthy and enjoyable today and a secure and stable tomorrow for our community.

I congratulate my fellow candidates, both in Fraser Lake and in our neighbouring communities, for their courage and commitment in letting their name stand for office and I wish them all the best of luck at the polls.
