Council candidate: Janna Simons responds – What motivated you to run for municipal office?

District of Sicamous: Simons,Janna - council candidate

  • Oct. 23, 2014 8:00 p.m.

My motivation for running for municipal office is the potential progress that I can see for this town.

After attending council meetings throughout the past, it just didn’t seem that all of the council members wanted to see change for the community.

Progress happens with change and sometimes a change in council is what it will take to make a positive impact for Sicamous.

I am hoping to be part of a better Sicamous, one that puts the needs of the residents in the forefront, but also balances the need for jobs and business creation for a year-round community.
