I would like to introduce myself. My name is Ron McGivern, and my family and I live in Cherry Creek on a small acreage. We have an active rural lifestyle, complete with horses, chickens, dogs, cats, and who knows what else will show up. Two 4H steers are coming in a few weeks. We are both leaders in 4H; my wife Marie is President of the Kamloops and District 4H council, and I am an A leader with a local club. (We always welcome new members by the way, both horse and outdoor living-sheesh, had to get the plug in). I am the Academic Director, Faculty of Arts with Thompson Rivers University.
I understand the challenges faced by rural and small community residents, and would like to be your voice within the TNRD. I note solid waste is an issue with your community, as with many others in the TNRD. In others it is water, sanitation (septic), small business and of course the latest issue thrown at us all- the Ajax Mine proposal. By the way, I am far from being convinced this proposal is of benefit to us in Area J. Conversations with folks on Goose Lake Road ( in the middle of it all) have informed me of the incredible impact this will have in Area J.
If any of your neighbours would like to get to know me, I can certainly try to come by Lac Le Jeune for a chat before the election. We can schedule that! Otherwise, please have your neighbours contact me if they have any questions of myself and my candidacy.
