Election introduction, question 1 Henderson

Spence Henderson: 'I want to be part of our future'

Spence Henderson

Incumbent councillor

 

I’m remarried for three years now, have 10 blended kids and spouses (one of them now teaching French at the PSO) and four grandchildren.

I actually live and pay taxes in 100 Mile House and have lived in the area 35 years. I’ve served District council for nine years and the Chamber of Commerce for many more. I am highly involved at Cariboo Christian Life Fellowship church. I own and operate True North Counselling.

 

QUESTION 1

The main reason I’m running for re-election is the direction and success I have seen in 100 Mile over the last three years. I see relationships with the CRD, the Canim Lake Band, School District 27, the RCMP and others beyond my wildest dreams.

I also see a financial stability and growth towards elimination of debt in the District. These lay the ground for economic growth.

As a municipality and region we are in an enviable situation. Look at Sunrise Ford, West Fraser, the RCMP, and the Dairy Queen. They’re investing for the future of the South Cariboo.

I want to be a part of that investment. I want to help continue the good direction District council has followed over the last three years. There is a phenomenal economic opportunity building, which could not have happened without the relationships and economic stability I mentioned. As I’ve said since I worked on the radio stations, “I love this place.”

I want to be a part of our future.
