Council candidate Gord Bushell

First of all, I believe that we have to live within our means as opposed to increasing the tax rate.

It’s important to review our opportunities for cost cutting, but it’s equally important to increase our revenues from available federal and provincial funding programs. Better management of our financial resources could also free up surplus funds to promote Sicamous as a great place to live, and a great place to do business. When a town grows and prospers, additional revenues become available for better services and those extra ‘quality of life’ amenities. In order to accomplish these goals, Sicamous needs a unified team on council.
