In his own words: Duncan council candidate Ranjit Dhami

I am running for council out of sense of responsibility and loyalty for my community.

I grew up in Duncan delivering papers to Mayor Barker, and Mayor Coleman. I also coached Mayor Kent's son's youth soccer, so I feel a connection to the work they put into this community.

As the President of the Duncan-Cowichan Chamber of Commerce I have the privilege to work with many local stakeholders in the community and I am always impressed with their passion for Duncan. I know I share their sense of passion and commitment for our community as well.

It's easy to be an arm chair critic, but it's very difficult to stand up and be accountable. I understand the importance of dialogue, transparency and being held accountable for the decisions I make.

I have been part of the Duncan Community for over 37 years. Colleen and I have been married for 23 years and we are proud to have raised our two children here. I am a Bank Manager in Downtown Duncan.

I hope voters in Duncan will give me the honour to represent them on Council.
