Candidates enter the race
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 have lived and worked as a financial advisor here for the past 11 years and I am the current president of the Salmon Arm Chamber.
I am running for council because I believe we need to develop a higher level of accountability for the spending of taxpayers’ money. I would encourage a more business friendly atmosphere and recommend that a task force be formed to develop an integrated business plan that fits our community. I believe that my 30 years of leadership experience and my get-it-done attitude will be a good addition to the new council.
My 17 years as a paramedic with the BCAS and 13 years at Shuswap Lake Hospital have helped in developing strong critical thinking and collaborative teamwork skills. I have learned the importance of listening in order to make effective decisions.
I have worked with my husband to develop our consulting business from a local operation to an international company.
Having been raised in Salmon Arm I have enjoyed participating in many volunteer activities.
My mandate is to promote fiscal responsibility while supporting smart, sustainable growth within the confines of sensitive environmental issues through open collaborative government.
I am a hard-working business owner in Salmon Arm with Oishii Japanese Restaurant. I am happily married (17 years) with two wonderful kids.
My focus for this campaign is to promote a stronger economy for Salmon Arm through thoughtful growth and development. I understand the needs of the average family. I want to be the voice for those of us that rely on a strong economy in this city; the voice for those of us that love this city but need to survive financially.
I will work hard to help Salmon Arm find the balance to be a better place to live, to work, and to play.
