Livesay and Elliott announce respective UBID trustee campaigns

  • Feb. 22, 2016 7:00 p.m.

Bruce Livesey and Jim Elliott announced that they will seek election as Union Bay Improvement District trustees at the annual general meeting on April 2. Both Livesey and Elliott vow to work in the best interest of landowners to move forward with community infrastructure plans for fire and water.

“I am encouraged by the support the community has shown me during the past six years, and the endorsement we are receiving at the doorstep,” said Livesey.

Two trustee positions become vacant on April 2, with Elliott and incumbent Livesey the only declared candidates at this point.

“I’m well aware of the challenges and the associated costs of providing services,” said Elliott. “As a long-time resident, I appreciate the mix of people that make Union Bay such a great community. As well, I understand the challenges we face in moving forward in a constructive way so that we won’t be burdened with unaffordable costs. If I am elected, I will work to achieve consensus on the best direction to achieve this goal.”

The UBID Annual General Meeting is on Saturday, April 2 from 1–3 p.m. in the Union Bay Community Hall.
