MLA John Horgan

Each year as we approach the end of December people often reflect on the past 12 months – the many challenges faced as well as the good fortune that  we have encountered. I also put my mind to next year and think about my goals and priorities. What do we truly want to accomplish in 2012 both personally and in our community?

As we contemplate 2012, with a sense of renewal, I look forward to the opportunities the year ahead will bring to residents of Sooke and the surrounding area.

I look forward to making progress on transportation improvements and economic development. Working with regional and local government to find ways to manage growth and protect the special places that make our area so desirable to live. I am always struck by the wisdom of the people I meet and the ideas that our community members have. Listening and learning will be my focus over the coming year so that I can better represent the broad cross section of views in Juan de Fuca.

I’m anxious to get at it and want to hear your goals for the coming year. Please share them with me by dropping into my office (800 Goldstream Ave), phoning 250-391-2801,  dropping me a note at john.horgan.mla@leg.bc.ca<mailto:john.horgan.mla@leg.bc.ca>, or just approaching me on the street or around the community.

I wish you all a very happy holiday season and a coming year filled with peace, joy, productivity and prosperity.

John Horgan, MLA

Juan de Fuca
