Bruce Hallquist is seeking another term as councillor.

Hallquist is a lifetime Summerlander, with more than 40 years of business and community service.

He was the recipient of the 2006 BC Community Achievement Award. For the last 11 years he was part of a society that raised $3 million for the youth community through the retail operation of the Penny Lane Stores.

He has also spent years on council, and  served on many committees.

“I be-lieve in a common sense, balanced approach to decision making,” Hallquist said. “I am open minded and support innovative ideas for community services. I believe council, as a team, should provide our municipality with a shared present and future vision, through leadership by them.”

Hallquist believes creating jobs is vital to the community, through the promotion of a newly created industrial park.

“I believe we need to ensure we have long term growth planning in place and a financial strategy to go with it,” he said. “Redevelopment in the downtown is essential to the long term sustainability of our community. As your councillor, I would be the voice of experience.”
