Angela Yunker’s councillor candidate biography

Hello, my name is Angela Yunker, I am a happily married mother of four children. I ran a few months ago in the by-election. Since I last ran I now currently sit on our Villages tourism committee and I am enrolled in North Island College online learning working towards obtaining my computing accounting certificate.

We moved to Port Alice in 2014 and instantly fell in love with the area and its people. We want to raise our children here and retire here eventually. I am running for Village Council to do my best to ensure our Village has a future for all families. We need to end our dependence on the Mill, create new opportunities for business and help our economy grow. We need to keep people here so we don’t lose services like the hospital and our RCMP. We need to fix our infrastructure to ensure we can provide reliable services to our population. If elected I promise to do my best to make Port Alice the best it can be!

Correction: the Gazette apologizes for using the previous election’s biography from this candidate. The biography has been updated.
