Clinton Council candidate Marian Nelson

Incumbent councillor Marian Nelson is seeking re-election to Clinton Council

  • Nov. 6, 2011 12:00 p.m.

1. I have lived in Clinton permanently since 1985 and I am the postmaster at the Clinton Post Office.

3. I have been a Legion Ladies Auxiliary member for 25 years and have filled numerous positions within that group. I also am a member of the Royal Canadian Legion and have been president and secretary in the past. When my children were growing up in Clinton I was very involved in the different sporting events, especially baseball.

4. I have been a councillor for the past three years. My portfolios have included public works, Communities in Bloom, the Annual Ball Committee and I was instrumental in helping to bring back our Recreation Commission, which now hosts such events as Winter Fest, Easter, Family Fun Fest and now is helping with Hallowe’en.

5. The most important issues to me would be to bring more families and business to town. We need to find investors to possibly develop the subdivision that the village owns. This would be a start for housing. Other things that could possibly help are expanding on the trail systems with ATVs, snowmobiling, trail rides, and cross country skiing possibly offering package deals. This would help bring business to existing and to new businesses as well.
