NEWS RELEASE · 23rd September 2011
Today, Iím excited to announce that I will be filing my nomination papers at City Hall as a candidate for the office of Mayor in the City of Terrace.
The past three years as your Mayor have been exciting, challenging and extremely rewarding. Iím proud of the work that this Council has accomplished through strategic planning, defined goals and a vision for the future of our community.
The decision to put my name forward for re-election was not an easy one. I take my responsibilities as Mayor very seriously. The Mayor must be able to listen to all viewpoints and make decisions based on the will of the people. I have enjoyed being creative in community promotion and problem solving and Iím proud to be acting as an ambassador for Terrace and liaison with senior levels of governments. I understand the challenges facing Terrace and Iím constantly looking to find solutions to those challenges. I seek out opportunities to strengthen relationships with neighbouring communities to create a strong, unified region. Employing the minds and talents of everyone in the community and throughout the region is the key to helping us reach our community goals. One of the ďbalancing actsĒ is to be fiscally responsible with tax dollars while taking advantage of opportunities to leverage those dollars through provincial and federal government funding.
Iím excited about the future of Terrace. I remain passionate about helping this community grow and prosper. Iím committed to building on our successes and bringing our community vision to life.
I would be honoured to continue working on your behalf as the Mayor of Terrace.
Dear Mayor Pernarowski:

Way to jump in there with both feet. Now that they're both muddy......I mean wet......not! You want to go again?
Thankyou for your patience for my tax-paying tardiness. It has been a rough year.
You might not remember me, but you are the only Terrace politician who ever knocked so graciously on my door..........smiled when I opened it, offered your hand when I stepped out into the sunshine, and engaged me in a respectful introduction of your political self.
