Work to sustain our strengths

Three questions for city council candidates – Mary Storry

1. My husband and I have lived in several great communities, but chose Campbell River as our home because of the health facilities, the transportation network, the natural beauty, access to recreational opportunities and the strength of the economy.

I know I share these values with the community and will continue to work to sustain these strengths.  This means securing investment that will support well-paying jobs and local business.  Families need to live together and be able to spend money in their community.  My vision for the community is comprehensive.

 

2. I bring a range of experience and skills to council.  Prior to my return to Campbell River, I was employed for 10 years as a base manager for a regional airline. In that capacity I was responsible for managing employees, contractors and facilities within budget constraints. My most important role was ensuring the safety of the public, the aircraft and the crew.  From my experience as a Penticton city councillor, I bring new ideas for consideration and qualified insight to decision making.    I have a proven record of respecting the rights of our residents and making decisions that make sense.

This last term on council, we have made significant movement on two important initiatives, the hospital and economic growth.  If I am re-elected I will ensure that time and energy is not lost retracing our steps.

 

3. During my first term council invested in producing televised council meetings.  I fully supported this long overdue, greatly improved communications to the public.

This term we will be adding council meeting webcasts.  I see some opportunity to expand the newspaper City Currents submission.

I suggest we include a segment for the city manager to provide facts on issues of current concern to the public.
