RUN­NING FOR COUN­CIL

CAN­DI­DATE for Divi­sion Two in the lo­cal gov­ern­ment elec­tions.

I wish to an­nounce my in­ten­tion to nom­i­nate as a can­di­date in the up­com­ing lo­cal gov­ern­ment elec­tions.

Hav­ing lived al­most my en­tire life in the Isis dis­trict I am a very proud lo­cal res­i­dent. I feel that Childers, and the other small com­mu­ni­ties in our re­gion, are sadly be­ing over­looked and left to fend for them­selves.

Our ru­ral com­mu­ni­ties are the back­bone of our coun­try and they should be re­ceiv­ing more at­ten­tion and sup­port than they cur­rently are.

My life has taken me on an in­ter­est­ing jour­ney and I feel that all of th­ese ex­pe­ri­ences will help me to do the job of a coun­cil­lor.

My life skills have been gath­ered from be­ing a wife, mother, banker, teacher aide, re­tail worker, JP, mar­riage cel­e­brant and former com­mit­tee mem­ber of sev­eral lo­cal or­gan­i­sa­tions.

In 2014 I fought the hard­est bat­tle of my life when I was di­ag­nosed with breast can­cer. This bat­tle taught me the most valu­able lessons and has com­pletely changed my out­look on life. Life is to live. Don’t sit on the side­lines. Get in there and have a go. Make it hap­pen. That is what I am do­ing. It has al­ways been a goal of mine to rep­re­sent our incredible com­mu­nity. I will do my best to lis­ten and to com­mu­ni­cate.

I am not go­ing to make prom­ises that I will be un­able to keep. I want to lis­ten, learn and work hard to be an ef­fec­tive coun­cil­lor.
