Vanderhoof: Moutray, Kevin – councillor candidate

It has been my pleasure to serve on council for the past three years. Committees I have sat on or chaired include Community Centre, Energy, Minerals North, Air Quality, and Concert. I have been a liaison to the Exhibition Society, Nechako Waste Reduction Initiative, and Mount Milligan Sustainability Committee.

A lot of the infrastructure deficit that plagues other towns has been kept in check in Vanderhoof. Water treatment is paid for and the lagoon will be next year. Every year we pave more than planned. We keep our tax rate low while providing great services.

In my opinion, top priority for Vanderhoof is definitely the aquatic centre. I won’t talk much on this as I believe it has been well debated and a 78% mandate in the referendum shows that this is a priority for our residents.

The next priority is having a collage campus centered on trades training. This is vital for the sustainability of our community. There is a glut of welders in the lower mainland but you’re hard pressed to find them here. The way to fill those jobs is to encourage our youth to train and stay here.

That being said, creating a community centre is near and dear to my heart. There are a lot of local groups in need of space and I believe we need to find a way to make it available.

I believe dedication and love for our community are what make me a good candidate for council. This term I have only missed two regular or committee of the whole meetings. Other activities include Nechako Valley Search and Rescue (swift water and ice rescue, ground search team leader), assisting with biathlon coaching, as well as many outdoor pursuits.

The most important things in my life are my family. My wife Mia is an amazing partner who has a lot of patience for me being gone a lot. My children William and Linnea are an inspiration to me every day.
