Shelley Quist

My name is Shelley Quist; I am a combined Laboratory and X-ray Technologist at Port Hardy Hospital. I moved here two years ago with my family for my job at the hospital. During the past two years I have become involved as a volunteer firefighter with the

Port Hardy Volunteer Fire Dept. and also a paramedic with BC Ambulance. I am married to my wonderful husband Shane Quist who is also a paramedic with BC Ambulance. We are raising our three children here Sasha (16), Tristan (9), and Darian (5). We have

decided that Port Hardy is home for us and where we want to raise our children here. I am running for council so that I can have input and steering in the direction we go in Port Hardy over the next four years. I believe we have huge issues with recruitment and retention of healthcare professionals like doctors, nurses, ultrasound techs, and lab and X-ray techs. After a few years we have a full-time physiotherapist coming soon. As well, we need to search out and bring business to town. This will help spur the economy here and we can work on a downtown revitalization project to help improve our downtown image. We need to also work with our MLA to lobby for change in the BC Ferries system and have it put back to previous service levels. I believe that I am a definite asset to council with my previous experience of VP Student Affairs on the Kelsey Students Association, Shop Steward for HSA, and advocacy work that I have been a part of for a national childcare program where I lobbied the provincial and federal governments. I am approachable, strong-minded and will represent all citizens fairly and equally. I look for your support on Nov 15.

Thanks,

Shelley Quist
