Zeballos: Julie Colborne

I believe the number one issue in Zeballos is community involvement.

1. What’s the No.1 issue in Zeballos?

I believe the number one issue in Zeballos is community involvement. Sure, the economy is bad, people are losing jobs or having to leave their homes for extended periods to go to work, our infrastructure is getting old, the road coming in etc, etc, but I feel that when there is a good community spirit in a place and people are connected to each other, it makes all of these issues much easier to handle.

2. What would you do to bolster the sluggish economic situation?

There is no one answer for this question…It will take hard work, determination and some thinking out of the box to make positive change in our economic situation. Buying locally is something that everyone can do. Using the services available in your own community is important.

3. Why should people vote for you?

This has been my first term as a councillor, and the learning curve is huge. There is so much to learn, and I believe I have finally hit my stride and now have enough knowledge about local government to be able to represent my community with confidence. I have found my voice. I believe people in my community find me approachable and so they can to come to me to get answers to their questions or get issues put on the table and discussed. My work here is not yet done and I would like the opportunity to continue as councillor.
