Zak Eburne-Stoodley is vying for a seat on Grand Forks city council

Life-long Grand Forks resident Zak Eburne-Stoodley is running for city council for the third time and is asking Grand Forks residents to support him in his dream of helping lead this beautiful city into the future.

“This is a gem among communities,” he said. “I can’t imagine living anywhere else. With your help, I will be a fresh voice on city council. I will work hard for you and make sure your voice is heard.”

Zak says people didn’t have enough say in regard to water meters. “If I had been on council, I would have listened. Many people are concerned about radiation, I would have promoted analogue meters, without a monthly reading fee. I think that would have been a good step towards mediation.”

Regarding the future of water meters, Zak says, “Yes, we need to conserve water. Yes, there are many ways we could have done that. But now, with many meters installed and being bound by contracts, it would be hard to stop the meters without putting the city at financial risk.

“However, I can see in the future discontinuing the reading fee for analogue meters, or perhaps even making meters voluntary.”

Zak has an extensive, proven track record of community service. He has spent many years volunteering for local events, groups and organisations. “Actually, I can’t think of one I haven’t helped out with!

“I am in this for the long haul.” Zak says. “I will be here to deal with issues such as domesticated deer, the depletion of our business community, and our aging infrastructure and the many others that will come council’s way, and I will do it with honesty, integrity and transparency.

“Please contact me any time at 442-3854 or zakeburne@gmail.com with any questions or concerns you want to discuss with me.”
