Lynn Miller, candidate

Question: Why are you the best choice to represent Sicamous on council?

  • Sep. 11, 2013 6:00 a.m.

Hi! I am Lynn Miller. I moved here in 1979 as a single mom with two sons Kevin and Sean. I have been the Greyhound agent for 24 years and a partner in The Bottle Shop for 18 years. So I know how important it is to build trust, create jobs and budget. I was on council for 15 years, deputy mayor for three years, served on the union negotiating committee to work out fair agreements, served on the library board for eight years. I have been a member of Citizen’s on Patrol for 18 years, helping my community.

The big-city rules adopted during the building boom are really hurting us. They need to be changed to reflect what is happening now.

We need to turn on our “Welcome-to -Sicamous” sign to let investors and developers know we are open for business.

We need to give our community and service groups a voice to help shape our future.

We need to work to get palliative and dementia care beds in Sicamous so our people can remain here.

We have safety issues with the Shell intersection, and we need an off-road path from Kerr to Maier Road.

We need a discussion about our wildlife, and how we can help keep them, and people safe.

We need to think outside the box, to bring as many jobs, businesses and tourists to our community as possible.

With portable showers and bathrooms, it is time to consider allowing camping on large properties.

I am hard-working, dependable, a good listener, I fight for what I believe in, and I believe in Sicamous.

These are some of the reasons I believe I am the best choice to represent Sicamous on District Council.

Please vote Lynn Miller.
