Election 2018: David Brooks-Hill running to be CSRD Area B director

David Brooks-Hill is running to be the director of Area B with the Columbia Shuswap Regional District in the upcoming municipal election.

“The big issue that got me interested was when they brought in building inspections,” Brooks-Hill said.

It appeared to him at the public meetings that people were generally against the proposal, however it went through anyway without a public vote on the matter.

Brooks-Hill said he found that undemocratic.

Since then he has discovered other topics he believes could have been handled in a more democratic way.

“I want to make sure, as much as possible, if people don’t want it to happen then it won’t happen,” Brooks-Hill said.

Though he doesn’t have experience with local governance, he is familiar with municipal law as he has worked with local government through his law practice.

Brooks-Hill has lived in the Revelstoke area for seven years.
