Plourde makes introductions

Final profile of a municipal election candidate for city council

  • Nov. 2, 2011 7:00 p.m.

As the Nov. 19 municipal election approaches, candidates for city council have begun to announce their campaigns. The Observer is giving the candidates an opportunity to briefly introduce themselves to the community.


I believe that a city’s council is meant to be a fair representation of the people that elected it. I pride myself on being a strong voice and a dedicated leader.

I was elected the president of my graduating class and received the Top Citizenship award four years in a row at Salmon Arm Secondary and took two top leadership awards.

I am not a banker or realtor but I would be most pleased to be the one chosen to represent the young people and the arts community.

I will not focus on my personal ideas and beliefs but the concerns and ideas of those who I represent, the voters.
