Candidate for council Shelley Sim

Editor, The Times:

Re-elect Shelley Sim for Clearwater council

Editor, The Times:

LOVE WHERE YOU LIVE! For the past two terms, I have served on council with an excellent team who have built a strong foundation for Clearwater and the valley.

I am seeking a third term to keep the work going. I feel that my experience will be valuable in the next stages of community growth.

In addition to running a local business (Original Holidays.ca), I am currently upgrading my education and taking Community Economic Development, which I see as a valuable asset to the council table.

My goals for the next term would be to enhance the social infrastructure of the community to ensure citizen inclusion of all ages and stages. This would include developing a Social and Economic Advisory Committee.

I would like to see more table top discussions with local business and creating more opportunity (and funding) for art, culture, festivals and more.

Council has been very strong in advocating for localizing jobs as opposed to a centralized system out of Kamloops. Issues relating to recruitment and retention are important and this includes including housing strains.

Fuel management strategies is a key priority along with ensuring the budget process continues to build our reserve funds for future projects.

We live in a great community. I would be honored to be able to continue to serve Clearwater for a third term.

When we all work together, the result is an outstanding community that we can all be proud to call “home”.
