Several years ago, when we first bought the farm, our horses escaped and ventured out on the highway. Some dear soul stopped, calmed me down and helped me bring them home halting logging trucks along the curving way.
I cannot tell you how great a service you provide when you stop and help an animal in distress. It is the ultimate tell-tale of how compassionate society is.
Now the work begins
I would like to congratulate the successful elected councillors and the mayor, and to thank those citizens of Pemberton who supported me on Nov. 19, 2005.
Pemberton must be sustained by a healthy environment.
My mandate is to work with council, community groups, government, First Nations, and the SLRD to make this vision a reality.
Sustainability is everyones responsibility.
We need in the next three years to pick economic development that fits our community. What will we sacrifice? We need to keep our uniqueness and our sense of place.
We need to use our resources effectively.
We have to become interdependent.
We need to be more engaged in our community.
Strong communities come with interdependence, not isolation, partnerships with First Nations, the SLRD and our neighbours is a necessity.
This council will have a number of challenges in the next three years. The overall goals of shared decision making are to achieve good decisions, to achieve them together, and to do so within a reasonable amount of time.
For myself as a member of this council, I will never compromise my integrity, no matter what the perceived benefit. The only person who can rob you of your reputation, credibility, and good name is yourself.
I look forward to the next three years with what the voters elected, a balanced team.
Thank you Pemberton for such an honour to serve you, and good luck to everyone in our great community.
Now the work begins.
Councillor, Village of Pemberton
