Village of Alert Bay: White, Wendy — council candidate

Wendy White

While originally raised on a farm from Vulcan, Alberta, I have made my home here in Alert Bay for the past 10 years. I have been a social worker for the last 30 years with employment now being with ‘Namgis First Nation as Director of ‘Namgis Community Services. It provides a variety of services from Infant Development, Early Childhood, Child Welfare, Social Assistance and Family and Individual supports. During this time I have enjoyed a variety of activities and outside ventures, one being the president of the Board of Directors of Alert Bay Artists Society, another as a member of the Board for the Alert Bay Library.

I am an incumbent candidate and I look forward to continuing this role. As we all know, it takes some time to orient oneself to the issues and continuity lends strength to the local government.

We want to have transparency, a balanced budget, and a sustainable economy.
