Election 2014: Council candidate Ian Hoar

City of Victoria: Hoar, Ian ---- council candidate

  • Nov. 6, 2014 5:00 p.m.

Bio

Ian is 33 years old and is a software developer in Victoria. His past involvement in politics was as a news camera operator for CTV Vancouver island, where he got a behind closed doors look at Victoria’s political players. He comes to politics out of a love for Victoria and a desire to represent his generation in local politics.

 

Why should I vote for you?

I hope to join council as a pragmatist interested in downtown revitalization, alternative transportation and supercharging our creative economy. By day, I am a software developer in Victoria’s booming tech sector and I hope to be able to use my creativity and problem solving skills to help modernize our city.

 

Your main goal if elected?

My main goal is to reduce the administrative drag on entrepreneurs and creators. The most common criticisms I’ve heard about Victoria concern its slowness and its bloated processes. We should be a city that is saying “yes!” to new business and doing everything possible to enable our creators.
