It has been my privilege to serve the residents of Yorkton as city councillor for the past twelve years. During this time we have experienced unprecedented growth which continues to benefit our entire community. It is important that we continue to strive for growth and development, so that Yorkton continues to be the place “Where Good Things Happen”.
I am proud to call Yorkton home after living, working, and raising my two daughters here. In addition to my council duties I am also Branch Manager of TD Canada Trust and remain committed to being involved within our community. I presently serve as Chairman of the Yorkton Housing Corportation , as a member of the Economic Develpoment Committee, as a member of the Emergency Measures Committee, a director of the Spring Expo, and a member and past president of the Yorkton Lions Club.
As a councillor for the City of Yorkton I will strive to:
- Keep property tax increases at or below the rate of inflation
- Ensure Yorkton continues to be a safe community to live and raise a family
- Foster a business friendly environment to attract new businesses and expansion of existing businesses
- Continue to improve our infrastructure so that roads, sewers, and sidewalks are maintained
- Seek developers to build affordable homes and rental properties
- Promote expansion of our Community College to provide opportunities for young adults to stay in Yorkton
- Provide an abundance of quality water for both residential and business consumption
- Ensure that all residents have access to numerous recreational and cultural activities
I am extremely proud to call Yorkton home. It gives me great pleasure as a city councillor to have been directly involved in the decisions that have shaped our city in to what it is today. Our city is growing with many new businesses, an expanding community college, a new firehall, water treatment plant, skateboard park, walking trails, and numerous job opportunities to retain our youth.
On October 24, 2012, please VOTE for LES ARNELIEN as councillor for the City of Yorkton. Together we can continue to build a better Yorkton and improve the quality of life for all residents.
Thank-you for your continued support.
