Election 2014: Council candidate Beth Burton-Krahn

Township of Esquimalt: Burton-Krahn, Beth - council candidate

  • Nov. 6, 2014 8:00 a.m.

Bio

Beth has a long history of involvement in Esquimalt, having lived here with her husband and two sons for 24 years. She is both contemplative and action-oriented, a combination that is needed at the council table. She truly listens and educates herself on the issues before making any decisions.

 

Why should I vote for you?

I have a strong track record of grassroots success. I am the founding president of the Esquimalt Residents Association, and one of the founding directors of the Sewage Treatment Action Group. I am passionate, pragmatic, collaborative, an excellent communicator, and I do the hard work necessary to get things done.

 

Your main goal if elected?

To bring my depth of knowledge on the sewage file to moving the sewage treatment plant forward as municipalities look to a sub-regional partnering option. We have a deadline. This is a very complex issue, and I have the knowledge and experience necessary to be a very effective part of the decision-making process going forward.
