Village of Alert Bay: Granger, Lisanne — council candidate

  • Nov. 5, 2014 5:00 a.m.

Lisanne Granger

I am running for the position of Councillor in the Village of Alert Bay. I am seeking your support to enable me to become part of a team that will help build on the goals and successes of previous and current Councils and to put forward new ideas and policies that will allow our community to move forward in a positive way that will benefit our whole island.

I was born and raised here and have brought my own family up here, and am very committed to ensuring that our town continues to be a great place to live. Both of my parents were very active in service groups here, so it has been instilled in me from a very young age to give back to my community.

Some of the important issues facing our community are ensuring that our health care levels are maintained, and ideally enhanced. Also, ways need to be explored to look for means of developing economic opportunities for new small businesses.

With your support, I would like the opportunity to put my skills, experience, and commitment to work for the betterment of our great town.
