Councillor Davies says experience is key

He says it all boils down to his experience; as a two-term councillor, Chair of the North Peace Economic Development Commission, and a commissioner of the North Peace Pool Commission, he argues it all adds up.

"With those experiences comes this understanding, and adds into that toolbelt of knowledge and ways that you can apply into different situations."

Davies is also very active in the community and is involved in cadets and the Restorative Justice program.

He thinks council has done a good job at looking at the future, and how the community is going to grow, and wants to continue in that direction. Part of that is being realistic and not ignoring Site C.

"We need to make sure that we have strong leadership in place and good planning to ensure that our community is going to be prepared if this does go forward. If we don't have a plan in place, if we don't have relationships in place, we're going to be in trouble."

Davies feels strongly that the city needs to reassert itself as the energy capital of B.C., which is something he feels council has lost touch of.

Always looking ahead, he wants to build a better community for his children and creat a city that people want to move to and stay in.

"Being a school teacher, I hear all the time, 'I can hardly wait to get out of Fort St. John when I graduate'. Well, why? Why are young people saying that and what can we do to change their attitude?"

The next few weeks will be spent attending as many events as possible, not much of a change from the usual, where Davies encourages people to talk with him and discuss the future of the community.
