Why do you live in Revelstoke?
Revelstoke has been my whole life, I enjoy the diversity it offers such as hunting ,fishing, berry and mushroom picking, ATVing and hiking.
Revelstoke offers a wide range of employment and opportunities for entrepreneurs.
I like the friendly people which makes you feel at home in Revelstoke.
Why are you running to be the CSRD candidate?
I feel it is time that the CSRD residents have a voice in the decisions that are made, I will listen and find ways to improve the services.
I will make sure that your tax dollars are spent wisely.
Why do you think you are qualified for the job?
My 40 plus years in business and owner of numerous construction companies has given me many opportunities to deal with a wide range of issues on all levels of government.
I have served on the economic committee for the city of Revelstoke and am currently the president of the Revelstoke Rod and Gun Club.
I feel that this gives me the experience and knowledge to be able to make informed decisions on all matters concerning the CSRD.
What issues would you want addressed if you were elected?
There are many recent issues that need to be examined, such as the fire protection agreement, the building permit requirement and the taxes that don’t reflect the services provided by the CSRD.
A portion of our taxes are paid to the city of Revelstoke for fire protection and recreation, but we don’t have a vote on election day on who we trust to represent our investment for these services, I don’t believe that this is democratic
With one chair at a table of many, how do you plan on advocating for your constituents?
It would be my intention to work with all the CSRD directors that the important issues can be achieved for all CSRD areas, so if you want to make this happen for ” Area B ” vote for George Buhler.
