Village of Port Alice: Chase, Marnie — council candidate

Marnie Chase

Hello, my name is Marnie Chase and I am running for one of the four councillor positions with the Village of Port Alice.

I have lived in Port Alice for over 30 years and we were fortunate to raise our three children in such a great community.

I have always been involved with volunteer programs in Port Alice and am an active member of our community.

I  have worked with  Island Health (formerly VIHA) for the past 18 years, and am currently working as a Medical Lab Assistant at the Port Alice Health Center. A Licensed Practical Nurse, I also worked for many years in Port Hardy and Alert Bay.

I care about the future of Port Alice. I have seen what the downturn in economics can do to a small community. I have seen many businesses close and services leave. I have also seen what resilience and community spirit can do.

I would like to encourage more economic development in Port Alice.

I would like to see a strong relationship and open communications continue with the main employers, Neucel and Western Forest Products.

I would like to see that medical services we presently have remain. No more losses.

I would also like to see our Arena remain open and well used, as well as the community center which is also the heart of our town.

I am excited to run for council. I am hardworking, dedicated and take Pride in Port Alice.   Please consider voting for me when you exercise your right to vote on Nov. 15.
