Township of Esquimalt: Lavergne, Rodney - council candidate

  • Nov. 6, 2014 7:00 p.m.

Bio

Rodney is 70 years old, and is a retired certified protection officer instructor, married 46 years with two daughters and three grandchildren, all living in Esquimalt.

 

Why should I vote for you?

I was six years on the planning committee and the advisory planning commission. I drafted preliminary legislation to legalize secondary suites. I pushed to have the elevator installed in the recreation centre. Voters that cast a ballot for me will get an honest and open government. I realize I will be only one voice, but I will be a loud voice if I feel it is needed. I will not be intimidated by senior staff.

 

Your main goal if elected?

My main goal is to bring back basic municipal government, where the council makes more decisions with advice from staff. I would like to hear taxpayers saying city employees were helpful, rather than what I’m hearing on the door steps.
