Gaby Wickstrom’s mayoral candidate profile
Since the last election, I have continued to be involved in many aspects of the community; Chamber, Tourism, Community Catalysts, Forestry, Gate House Theatre and Community Futures. In October of 2016 I received a Master of Arts in Interdisciplinary Studies from Royal Roads University that has taught me new skills to help become even more effective in civic governance. I’m excited to lead a council that will employ a variety of new ways to communicate with the public to increase transparency and participation. My colleagues describe me as approachable and able to work constructively through conflict to make positive change. Our strength will come from working together to create common visions & values. My belief is that a multi-generational approach to updating our existing infrastructure is the most fiscally responsible way forward. I’m committed to helping us grow pride and prosperity for everyone in Port McNeill and the North Island.
