Squamish born and raised businessman, Rajan Hans has formed a new political party called “Squamish First” and is seeking a seat on council after encouragement of many members of the community.
“Squamish First will be a coalition of like-minded independents that will come together to achieve key goals for the community. It will be a coalition that will take action on Day One on priorities that Squamish residents have been asking for over the last 20 years. It will be a coalition that will deliver real results,” says Rajan Hans.
“I have seen Squamish grow exponentially over the years but investment in infrastructure has not matched the growth. Stronger policy is needed to prioritize investments in community amenities for young families and seniors. There has been lots of development with little to show for it, we need to ensure developers are paying their fair share,” says Hans.
Rajan Hans is the founder of Diamond Head security, a security services firm that employs locals and serves the sea to sky corridor.
“I believe experiences provide a solid foundation to generate discussion, before making ethical, educated, and meaningful decisions, on behalf of the community,” he says. More on Squamish First candidates and platform will be released in the upcoming weeks.
