Sean Bujtas for Terrace City Council

I am proud to have had the opportunity to serve my home town on City Council for the past four years. I was born and raised in Terrace, and have a long history of volunteerism in the community. I have a twenty-year-old daughter, Alex, who works for CN as a conductor, and a one-year-old son, George. My partner, Kelsey, is the Curator at Heritage Park Museum. I am the Vice President for the Terrace Youth Soccer Association, where I also used to be a soccer coach for Alex’s team—and probably will be again for George’s team. Sitting on the governance committee for BC Soccer allows me to be a voice for the northwest. I am the Assistant General Manager for Chances Terrace, where I’ve worked for 21 years, overseeing the transition from a bingo hall to the community gaming centre with over sixty employees that we are today. As a Rotarian, I am especially proud of helping with the duck race each year. In addition to sitting on City Council for the past four years, I served as a Terrace representative on the Regional District of Kitimat-Stikine for the past two years.

Over the past four years, Council has accomplished a lot. Most notably, the provincial government approved a new hospital for Terrace, thanks to ongoing advocacy on the part of council, staff, the hospital district, and many community stakeholders. We have supported ongoing growth and investment in the community, as exemplified by the new pellet plant at Skeena Sawmills. Thanks to the foresight of having a shelf-ready project planned for when a government grant came available, we saw a much-needed upgrade to the Aquatic Centre. We built upon and continued our good working relationships with Thornhill, Kitselas, Kitsumkalum, Kitimat, and the Nass Valley. We supported the Ministry of Transportation to restructure and make the Sande Overpass safer. We listened to the community and devoted city land, funding, and support to public housing projects for low-income and homeless people. Finally, we are excited to watch how the construction of Kitimat’s LNG Canada project contributes to economic development in Terrace.

If re-elected, I plan to continue to promote economic development through the development of the industrial park near the airport. We have a key opportunity here to see ongoing investment while being cognizant of the environment, securing a good balance of sustainability and revenue to enable us to support more social programs. I will continue to lobby the provincial government for the Resource Benefits Alliance, which would see money come back into northwest communities from big industrial projects around the region. I think that we should get our share of the money that the government makes from our area, rather than having it prop up Vancouver and Victoria and leaving us with limited infrastructure. I want to support city staff to continue having shovel-ready projects prepared to ensure we secure government grants as they become available. I would like to see Council come up with creative solutions to help people feel safe in the downtown while also supporting our most vulnerable citizens. I intend to continue promoting and supporting local business, and to continue working together with our neighbours in Kitselas, Kitsumkalum, Kitimat, Thornhill and the Nass Valley.
