Hacking seeks balanced demographic

Robert Hacking wishes to bring his knowledge and thoughtful, conscientious manner back in service at the council table for a second term.

A small business entrepreneur, and longstanding community advocate, Robert Hacking wishes to bring his knowledge and thoughtful, conscientious manner back in service at the council table for a second term.

“I am proud and fortunate to be able to call Summerland my home.  We need to attract a balanced demographic of new and returning residents with what our community has to offer.  Market-entry housing options, a solid core commercial and industrial job base, and a vibrant agricultural tourism industry.  We must showcase Summerland as not just a great place to visit, but also an amazing place to live and do business in.”

During his first term as councillor, Hacking has been directly involved in several key initiatives: new highway directional signage, a comprehensive and modern sign bylaw, new transit service to Penticton, a core management reorganization, and an upcoming review of highway speed limits and intersection improvements.

Hacking has deep roots in the community, born in Summerland General Hospital, and a graduate of Summerland Secondary in 1997.

Hacking has been a business operator in the downtown core for more than 10 years and is the manager of Bad Robot Computers and Electronics.
