Delta candidate runs for two positions

Fabian Milat seeking election to council and school board.

Fabian Milat has announced his intentions for the upcoming municipal election. Milat will be seeking election to Delta council and re-election to the Delta Board of Education.

Milat will be running as an independent for both positions.

“We need steady leadership through these difficult times. I would like to meld the educational and city concerns and issues to benefit all Deltans,” Milat said in a release.

“Increased communication between the two local governments will result in efficiencies and cost savings that will benefit all taxpayers.”

Milat said he is proud of his track record on the Delta school board as he was the only trustee to vote against school closures and school land sales.

He wants to carry on with what he said is the good work of the local board, noting Delta was one of the first districts to bring geothermal energy to many of its schools, which will result in hundreds of thousands of dollars in savings through lower utility costs.

In addition, the district has done its best to protect special education programs while advocating to the province for additional funding for children with learning disabilities.

Milat said he has learned what is important to Delta residents over the last few months while door-knocking since June.

“People have told me these are tough economic times and property taxes should not rise faster than the rate of inflation. The school district and municipal hall can and should work collaboratively to realize savings.”

Milat said he has the proven experience to face these challenges.

“Nine years on the Delta school board has given me great experience into government finances and I hope to bring that skill set to council while continuing to maintain fiscal prudence at the school district which has the fourth-lowest administration costs in the province.”
