Sacha Peter has announced he is seeking a second term of office as park board commissioner for Cultus Lake Park Board.

Currently the park board chair, his re-election platform focuses on continued efforts toward financial sustainability for the park board.

“We have made great strides in improving our financial performance over the past three years,” Peter said. “I also commit to avoiding an increase in residential density so people will not have to experience extra traffic congestion and strained infrastructure.”

Highlights from his first term, according to Peter, include “leadership” on budget decisions that took them from a deficit situation to a small surplus; a governance voice against amalgamation with Chilliwack, and implementing “open and accountable” meetings with a public questions period.

A resident of Chilliwack, Peter is a certified management accountant, self-employed in policy and communications work for the public sector, financial analysis, accounting and writing.
