Advertiser (Grand Falls) - - Editorial -

I be­lieve I have a unique per­spec­tive that is dif­fer­ent from other can­di­dates. I am in the mid­dle of 5 gen­er­a­tions liv­ing in GFW. My grand­mother Betty Freake re­cently turned 90 and re­sides at Hol­lett Re­tire­ment Cen­tre. My par­ents, John & Cathy ewitt He­witt are se­niors. I and my hus­band, Phil, are chang­ing our thoughts from rais­ing a fam­ily to plan­ning for re­tire­ment, our 3 chil­dren are try­ing to find em­ploy­ment that does not have them mov­ing away and we have 2 grand­sons un­der the age of 10. My im­me­di­ate fam­ily en­com­passes ev­ery age group and I per­son­ally see the is­sues and needs fac­ing fam­i­lies to­day in our com­mu­nity.

I am not a politi­cian or a busi­nessper­son. I live, work, raise my fam­ily, vol­un­teer my time and face the same prob­lems as oth­ers res­i­dents in GFW. I love my com­mu­nity and want to see it pros­per.

I am a doer, I don’t be­lieve in talk­ing about some­thing, I be­lieve in tak­ing ac­tion. If there is a prob­lem I think you ei­ther find a way to solve it or find an ac­cept­able al­ter­na­tive. I have a strong voice that would be heard on is­sues im­por­tant to you and I’m willing to stand up and be heard as your rep­re­sen­ta­tive.
