ELECTION 2014: Babchuk to seek city council seat
After three consecutive terms serving School District 72, Michele Babchuk has decided to throw her hat in the ring for a seat on city council.
“I am very excited about this opportunity,” said Babchuk. “My intention now is to use my leadership, team building skills and work ethic to bring respectful communication and public accountability to council chambers.
“After almost a decade on Campbell River’s school board I feel I have contributed greatly to the students, parents and community of Campbell River,” continued Babchuk. “I am honoured to have been able to serve as board chair for the past three years and vice-chair for the four years prior. I am proud to be leaving the board of education in a good position, a position that the future board can build on.”
Babchuk plans to work within council and with community stakeholders to explore responsible transparent taxation, community-oriented economic development so families can thrive, and remain in Campbell River, and practice educated and informed decision making that is in the best interest of the city as a whole.
