“I’m will­ing to sit and talk, I’m will­ing to try. I know there’s a lot of needs and wants in this town and I think I would like to head the team to do things and con­tinue on in a way that would be ben­e­fi­cial for the town.”

Town of Bon­av­ista Coun. Bev­erly Dyke is the lat­est to an­nounce she will vie for mayor next month in the up­com­ing mu­nic­i­pal election.

While she has been con­sid­er­ing run­ning for more than a year now, she de­cided on Mon­day, Aug. 14 she would in­deed go ahead and make it of­fi­cial.

“I think I’ve got a lot to of­fer,” Dyke told The Packet. She says one of her big­gest at­tributes is that she loves her town and ap­pre­ci­ates the residents.

“I’m will­ing to sit and talk, I’m will­ing to try,” she said. “I know there’s a lot of needs and wants in this town and I think I would like to head the team to do things and con­tinue on in a way that would be ben­e­fi­cial for the town.”

Dyke ac­knowl­edges there could be tough times ahead in terms of the econ­omy of the province but says she wants to be able to man­age what needs to be done for the com­mu­nity
