FOLLOWING an invitation by the United Truckers’ Association (UTA) to the six major Surrey and Delta municipal campaigns last week, five trucking plans were submitted for review by the UTA membership.
In Delta, George Harvie’s Achieving for Delta, Sylvia Bishop’s Team Delta, and Jim Cessford’s Independents Working For You all sent their plans should they be elected. In Surrey, Tom Gill’s Surrey First team and Doug McCallum’s Safe Surrey Coalition also outlined their visions.
Bruce Hayne’s Integrity Now did not respond before the deadline, the UTA said on Wednesday.
Each set of policy proposals is unique, and the effort and thought put into each is reflected in the submissions, said UTA spokesperson Gagan Singh.
“We are pleased that five campaigns responded to the UTA’s call, and our organization is happy to be able to post each plan so that our members can cast an informed vote on October 20,” added Singh. “We encourage all members to consider the details provided by each campaign, as this election represents a significant decision for the local trucking community.”
The UTA has now posted all plans received on its Facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/
