Robert Szachury 

Pemberton candidate profile


Hockey Card:

Occupations? Red seal-certified plumber and gas fitter, licensed boiler contractor. Years of industrial welding and sandblasting experience.

Furthest place you travelled and why. Caribbean Island holiday.

Describe yourself using five words or less. Tenacious, energetic, confident, logical, direct.

What is the one thing people would be surprised to learn about you? I love to bake and "can" food during harvest, usually 50 pounds of fruit at a time. A Kitchen Aid is my best tool.

Profile Questions:

What do you see as the top election issues? Economy, development, recreation.

How would you address the housing developments now facing the Village? As a community with no industry it has struggled with development. The Ravens Crest proposal will bring a clean industry and provide key growth for this town's future. The key is to work in unison with developers and not discourage interested parties. With the industry comes the need for more housing as can be provided by the Ravens Crest development.

What do you think is the Village of Pemberton's role in boosting economic activity? The Village should be instrumental in attracting tourism, promoting growth, making it a smooth process if someone wants to start and run a business. It should be a sustainable success for the business owner and the community.

What would you do to enhance the environment for business? Not sure about the logistics but reducing the cost of doing business is very important. Stimulating the local economy is at the forefront.

Give an example of a difficult situation you have overcome. Providing service prior to and during the Olympics was a very difficult challenge with a very positive outcome and great experience.

Where can people go to get your election platform? Facebook.
