Dear Friends & Neighbors, Tax-Payers & Voters, Supporters & Volunteers; to the Wonderful People of the Crowsnest Pass:
Thank you so very much for your support, generosity and help. It has been a pleasure to get to know those of you who I only just met during this campaign process. I have made quite a few new friends. It has been wonderful to renew old friendships and acquaintances. It has been great to work with my wonderful group of campaign volunteer's. A BIG thank you, to all of you.
I really hope that all of you will continue to drop by my Blog and my website. I don't plan to drop out of sight, now that the election is over. I will remain in the publics view, by my being involved in various areas in and around the Crowsnest Pass.
Feel free to stop me and say hello.
I am leaving this website up and running. I will still continue to write a daily Blog. I will also keep you updated and informed, of council's plans and actions, over the next three years.
I believe that we have turned a huge page here in the Crowsnest Pass. We have already decided in favor of change. We have a new Mayor and an almost all new council.
I have had the pleasure to meet them all and spend some time with most of them. They seem to be very competent people. I'm sure that they will take the Pass forward into a brand new and brighter future!!
(Unofficially) This NEW council is comprised of our new Mayor: Bruce Decoux, and the 6 Councillors:
Jerry Lonsbury, Andrew Saje, Brian Gallant, Larry Mitchell, Emile Saindon and Siegbert Gail.
Congratulations to all of you!!
As I plan to run again in October of 2013, I will leave most of my information available here, for anyone who wishes to read it.
I will update this site, as needed, as time goes on.
Please still feel free to contact me with any issues, concerns and ideas that you may have for or about the Crowsnest Pass.
As I said during my campaign, my door will always be open, my phone always on. That door will just not be situated in the Municipal Building.
I still feel strongly that our council needs a female voice. In fact, I believe that we need at least one woman on council. Two would be better.
That is one reason why I plan to run again.
I don't want to offend any men here, but there are good reasons to have women sitting on council.
Women look at things differently than men. They react differently and process things differently.
They do not posture with each other. They do not generally compete with each other or one up each other for a position of power. Women tend to have a calming effect on things.
They are the nurturers. They see things from a whole different perspective then men. They think differently than men. Women are used to multi-tasking and still making effective choices.
They can balance council out.
This is why you can count on me, to run again, in October of 2013.
