I am running for the Area D Director because I believe that voters should have a choice in who represents them for the next four years.
My background is in small business, tourism and two terms as Councillor for the Village of Kaslo. I was elected three times to the board of directors for Kaslo and District Community Forest Society and am currently serving in that position. I work part-time for North Community Lake Community Services Society as a mental health outreach worker.
I will encourage economic development that provides real jobs and real income for area residents, working with the Village council, Chamber of Commerce, Columbia Basin Trust, RDCK and the provincial government. We need 24/7 emergency services, a full-time on-call driver for those who have medical appointments in Nelson and Trail, accessible boat moorage for locals and tourists, and we need to sort out the issues at Meadow Creek Cedar Products.
