Paul Horn says that continuing the path of development is crucial for the City of Mission's success.
In an interview with CIVL, Paul Horn talked about his municipal election campaign to seek re-election. Horn became mayor in 2021 following a by-election that was called when then-mayor Pam Alexis became a member of the legislative assembly (MLA) after winning a seat in the provincial election.
Prior to becoming mayor, Horn served on the council for two terms from 2005-2011. He says the city must continue the path of development that the city council of Mission has embarked on.
"Over the last four years, the council has spent a lot of time trying to make sure that we had the planning we needed in order to meet the challenge of growth. Mission is slated to be one of the fastest growing communities in the Fraser Valley, in the Metro Vancouver area, and we can't stop growth. We don't have any power to do that so the next best option is for us to look at how we might embrace growth, address the challenges it brings, and the opportunities it brings," he says.
If elected, Horn believes he will continue on this path of progression.
