A CURRENT City of Terrace councillor believes his experience sitting on the Kitimat-Stikine regional district board as a city representative will serve him well as a director for Area C.

Brad Pollard is running so he can be part of the board that will deal with four big issues in the regional district. he lives in Terrace now, but is building a house north of the city.

“I want to bring some decorum and common sense to the position and represent the entire electoral area fairly,” he said about why he’s running.

Pollard’s four issues are the Forceman Ridge landfill plan, Enbridge, the MK Bay Marina and building on relationships with First Nations.

The city has done a good job building relationships with the two First Nations on either side of its boundaries whereas the regional district area includes nine or 10 First Nations, he said.

Area C itself has three First Nations, he added.

Pollard also lists a sewer system at Lakelse Lake as an important issue.

Pollard has sat on the regional district board as one of two City of Terrace representatives and was vice-chair last year.

As vice-chair, Pollard also made presentations to the government at the UBCM this fall and was chair for the Kalum Land and Resource Management Plan Monitoring Committee.

The time commitment as a regional district representative is slightly less than being on city council and is very focused, he said.

Pollard, who works for McElhanney Consulting Services as a consulting ecologist,  has lived here for 26 years.
