Top spots in municipal politics pursued

Election nominees accept District of 100 Mile House candidacy

Maureen Pinkney says she will run for mayor on Nov. 15.

“I am excited to be putting my name forward because I believe I am the right person to represent our community.”

Pinkney explains she cares a great deal about the community, where she was born and raised.

“I am a hard worker and a community-minded person.”

Pinkney adds she has many years of business experience, community volunteering, working with and leading other groups, and communicating with government “at all levels” to get things accomplished.

“We need a stronger economic outlook. We need more diversification in our business sector, both small and large. I am open to ideas, willing to listen and accountable to you, the taxpayer.

“Let me be your voice!”

John McCarvill says he has decided to run for councillor.

“As a business owner and active participant in many community organizations, it seems appropriate to bring my valuable life and business experience to the council table.”

He notes he and his wife have lived in the Cariboo since 1991 and enjoy the lifestyle and opportunities it offers.

“Albeit, I feel there are areas that need attention and perhaps having a new, fresh perspective on council will assist in that happening.”

The major areas he would focus on are business development, dealing with aging infrastructure and providing quality services that do not pose an unreasonable tax burden.

“We require growth in the region that is economically and environmentally sustainable, and at the same time socially responsible.”
