The Candidates for Council …Part 2

AARON RM NAGY: Nagy is 28 and a radio broadcaster as an on air announcer.

I am running for council because I believe the younger generation needs to take charge and have a voice on council. My experience working with the government to try to pass Jimmy's Law sparked my interest in politics and I wanted to serve the city that I love. I look forward to making a difference in this town.

RICHARD OKRAINEC: I have lived in Yorkton for over 17-years. I have been employed as the Property Manager of the Parkland Mall since 1999 and also manage two shopping centres in Winnipeg. I am married to my wife Donia and we have five children.

Much of my mandate mirrors my election of 2009, continue to manage the rapid growth of the City. I will ensure our taxes remain affordable while we continue to upgrade our infrastructure. As you look around the Area you will see we are open for business. I will continue to support our growth.

LARRY PEAREN: I am proud of our record for the past six years as we invested in infrastructure which included a new water treatment plant, expanded our police force, secured fire protection with a new hall and developed a strategy to address the affordable housing. We have addressed a major flood with infrastructure development and holding ponds. I am pleased to have supported our youth with the new skateboard park.

I am proud of my community service I have provided over the past 28 years including leading the Saskatchewan 2005 Yorkton Committee, Yorkton 125 and Western Financial City Centre Park committee. Currently participating on the Yorkton Airport Authority, Planning and Engineering, and District Planning.

My wife Sonia and I continue to enjoy the city and the quality of life it brings. Yorkton was chosen as the community to raise our two daughters. Now our grandchildren enjoy our fine Gallagher Water Park and play ground equipment.
