Vanderhoof: Little, Steve – councillor candidate

Returning for a possible third term as councillor, Steve Little says he’s running again so he can try to finish what he started.

“When I first got on council I was in charge of the pool committee and we took it right up and got that referendum,” said Mr Little, who has put six years into the project already.

With the help of Mr. Little, council has also constructed the vision to build a community centre that encompasses a trades centre and sports area.

“The plan is to have a hotel trades centre and pool as one complete complex.” said Mr. Little. “We’ve been working hard to get that up and running so kids can be trained in Vanderhoof.”

With the roots of his family in town, Mr. Little’s invested interest encourages him to focus not only on the pool but on making the town look better as a whole.

“Brown fields along the main street, let’s get them back into proper use. Let’s make the downtown look better instead of having decrepit old buildings,” said Mr. Little.

Since it’s not his first rodeo, Mr. Little feels his continued presence at council will help to benefit all other aspects of the community as well. Not only does he already know the inner workings of what it takes to be a councillor, he is a familiar face that people can relate with.

“[Considering] all the up-and-coming projects coming through the area we must build working relationships with all the various groups. A huge change in council may cause delays in progress.”
