Shelley Downey’s councillor candidate biography
Hi, I’m Shelley Downey. Over the last term, council has set in place contracts, policies and procedures that allow town operations to continue seamlessly as councils and staff change. We have also established reserves for Water, Sewer, and the Harbour.
My priorities for the next term are:
With the prospect of up to 100% funding, this should be achievable. The excuse that we can’t afford it is removed.
Updating the Zoning Bylaw
Updating the Official Community Plan
Update the Economic Development Plan and identify actionable items
These three are similar. Anyone reviewing these documents should have a sense of our town’s vision, values and plans for growth.
Friends visiting the north island for the first time were awed by our town and surroundings. Their comment was, Get Ready! You won’t be a secret much longer. So, with that thought and the fact that we have the systems and finances in place, it is time for action.
I would appreciate your vote on October 20th.
