Trina Gable to run as Union Bay Improvement District trustee candidate

Election April 20; advance poll April 9

My name is Trina Gable, and I am running for trustee on the Union Bay Improvement District board. I felt it was important for me to run, because I want the best for Union Bay. I want the residents to have a voice they can trust. I have many years of experience as a negotiator, safety officer, and as chairperson, just to name a few.

With the new development, opportunities for this community to grow are endless. For instance, the new water filtration plant will be up and running by the end of 2019, as mandated by Island Health.

Once this is complete, the Ministry of Municipal Affairs and Housing will then conduct a governance study. This will include the pros and cons of each level of government, be it, CVRD, UBID, or municipality. Either way, the residents will have a choice.

I want people to know they will have an advocate as trustee if I am elected. I will work hard to have office transparency. I want to learn, and grow with, and for this beautiful community we call home.

Environmental responsibility is always a priority for me. I wish to be a part of the negotiating team with Island Timberlands in order to ensure the protection of our Langley Lake watershed and our vital water source.

The upcoming election for the Union Bay Improvement District trustees is a pivotal point in Union Bay’s future, and I am seeking your vote to be a part of this bright, and positive Future. Please get out and vote.

• All candidates meeting April 4, 7 p.m.

• Vote on April 9 or April 20
