Daryll Marinello: candidate for director of TNRD Area I

Daryll Marinello – TNRD Area I candidate

1. How long have you lived in your community?

I moved to the Nicola Valley in 1990 and then to Spences Bridge in 2016. I spent most of my life living and working in rural communities and understand the challenges and issues faced by rural taxpayers.

2. What is your occupation?

I worked in retail for 10 years and then spent 5 years doing glass work. I now work plowing snow and doing winter maintenance on the Coquihalla Highway, between Merritt and Hope, and I have a 2-acre market garden in Spences Bridge during the summer.

3. Have you done any volunteer work here? Which group(s)?

I previously volunteered with the Nicola Valley Ducks Unlimited Committee and the Nicola Valley Rod & Gun Club.

4. Have you served before in municipal government or on a Board of School Trustees? If yes, where, when, and for how long?

Although I have not served in municipal government before, but it has always been something that I have been interested in pursuing. Since settling in Spences Bridge, I have become even more motivated to get involved with local government.

5. Which issues are most important to you?

Keeping rural living affordable by ensuring the TNRD is fiscally responsible with tax dollars and improving communication and transparency between the TNRD and the taxpayers in Area I are the issues that are most important to me.

6. How would you address them?

I plan to listen to the concerns affecting ALL our rural residents and provide a voice for the rural communities at the TNRD Board of Directors.

If elected, I will invest more time to look for funding for new projects BEFORE burdening taxpayers with the costs.

7. Additional comments.

Vote for a new voice on the TNRD board! I welcome any comments or questions. I can be reached at daryllmarinello@hotmail.com.
