Election 2018: Nancy Egely, candidate for Columbia Shuswap Regional District, Area C

One of two candidates vying to represent South Shuswap provides a bio, talks about the issues.

The Observer asked Paul Demenok and Nancy Egely, the two candidates running to represent Area C, South Shuswap, at the Columbia Shuswap Regional District board of directors’ table, to provide a short bio as well as answer the question: What do you think is the most pressing issue facing your electoral area and what solution to that problem do you propose?

Bio:

From Calgary, Alberta. In 1978 I moved to BC. I obtained my Pilot license, commercial licence and flight instructor rating and company owner. I later began working with the BC Coroners Service and was appointed a Coroner in 1994, while maintaining my position in the office and running a cattle ranch with my late husband.

Shortly after retiring , my husband lost his battle with cancer. I fell in love with politics and in 2014 , I was encouraged to campaign for councillor for the Village of Chase, and was elected. Now that I live in Sorrento, I am running for the position of Area Director.

What do you think is the most pressing issue facing your electoral area and what solution to that problem do you propose?

The most pressing issue as I see it and, as reported in the Governance Study (July, 2017), is to obtain the feasibility results from the Province on the costing and options going forward, of a new governance model for this area. 70% of respondents strongly agreed, or somewhat agreed, indicating that they were not happy with the current model. Residents feel that they may want more influence over decisions that affect their communities. It is time to put 20+ years of uncertainty and debate to rest and come up with a model and communicate those options to the people.
