Ensuring seniors needs are part of council’s decision making

Editor, The Times:

I have lived in Clearwater most of my life and raised two children here.

I have worked for several public sectors in Clearwater over the years including Community Resource Centre, Yellowhead Community Services, and the municipal office and have a good understanding of how local government works.

Currently I work with the Wells Gray Country Seniors Society as their Seniors Coordinator organizing events and activities for seniors. I also volunteer as a Director and Secretary of the North Thompson Communities Foundation.

As a long time resident of Clearwater I would like to be part of Clearwater’s continuing growth, working towards affordable housing, economic and recreational development and ensuring that seniors needs are part of council’s decision making process. Finding a balance between economic, community, environmental and cultural issues is a priority to me.

If elected I look forward to working together as a team with the new council towards a better robust future for Clearwater by:

  • Being fiscally responsible
  • Continue working on the community infrastructure
  • Work collaboratively with businesses and organizations in the community,
  • Encourage entrepreneurs and be open to “out of the box” opportunities
  • Seek out ways to revitalize the Brookfield Plaza complex,
  • Ensure that Dutch Lake remains the community “jewel”,
  • Ensure that TRU representative remains in the community
  • Continue to support seniors as vibrant, active members of the community and ensure they are included in all council decision making.

Lynne Frizzle,

Clearwater, B.C.
