Range of candidates encourages voter

With 11 candidates for council, plus two for mayor, one reader is pleased with her choices

My husband and I are thrilled to see a wide variety of candidates running in November’s municipal election.

We have often felt that municipal elections are an opportunity to actively participate in shaping the kind of community we want to live in and be a part of.

From Nils Jensen’s platform suggestion to put processes in place to better access provincial and federal funding support, to Michelle Kirby’s aptitude for engaging community members in local issues and Tara Ney’s determination to create a safe and health community – I think this year’s election will be a chance to vote for some very knowledgeable, experienced and committed individuals to govern this amazing community.

My family will be voting and I hope yours will be too.
