FB – Michael Nenn for Mission Council

Issues:

Issue 1 – A truly open, accountable and responsible municipal government

My promise – Working with all stakeholders to ensure that sound public policy is created that’s based on mutual respect, common sense with vision.

Government that is responsible to the District of Mission taxpayers and reflects the needs of the community. My door will always be open and that’s my solemn word.  Why don’t people vote? Because they feel that their vote doesn’t count and even if it, did the government doesn’t listen. It’s time to bring accountability back to you.  It’s your hard-earned tax dollars not governments and they need to ensure your voice is heard when doing council business.

Issue #2 – Public Services and Safety

My Promise – Making your tax dollars work for you by ensuring the district has the resources necessary to enforce bylaws and do its job in keeping our district safe.  As an example you the taxpayer shouldn’t be on the hook for the costs of cleaning up illegal drug labs.  The terribly written PSIT bylaw should never have been wholly rescinded but amended.  I will work with council to bring a new bylaw that gives the city the powers to fight illegal drug labs to make our city safe without victimizing innocent citizens.  Property crimes, graffiti, vandalism are all issues that need to be dealt with.

Issue #3 – Sustainable Growth with Vision

My Promise – Ensuring that Mission is defined in it’s own right as it’s own municipality.  New developments need to keep within the character and sustainability of our community.  My first job will be to fight against the proposal by Abbotsford to ship it’s garbage to Mission’s landfill.  A proposal with a current feasibility study paid for with 15k of your tax dollars approved by the CRMG.  A proposal to bring BC’s 5th largest city’s garbage to Mission’s landfill nearby Stave Lake.  Mission isn’t Abbotsford’s dumping ground.  We are our own community and we will choose what we want for our Mission, our future.  The future we want.

I encourage you to please contact me with your specific issues and concerns.
