Clinton Mayor candidate Daniela Dyck

Former Clinton councillor Daniela Dyck is seeking her first term as Clinton's mayor

  • Nov. 6, 2011 2:00 p.m.

1. I have lived in Clinton for 29 years.

2. I am not currently employed, and therefore if elected am committed to being a full time Mayor. In the past, I have worked at the Clinton Building Centre, Integris Credit Union, and West Fraser Chasm Sawmills. I believe in post-secondary education and have a degree in Brief Systemic Family Therapy.

3. I have been an active volunteer for many years, involved with Clinton Schools PAC, Rec. Commission, Emergency Social Services, Health Care Auxiliary, Clinton Cleavages, Clinton Literacy,  Curling Club, and Grad functions including Cowboy Concert.  I have volunteered for many Remembrance Day Services, Canada Day Celebrations and the Clinton Historical Society.

4. I was elected to council in November 2005 and acclaimed to council in 2008, serving my community for six years.

5. Maintain and improve existing services such as health care, education, and infrastructure while collaborating with staff and community groups to seek out investment, development, and industry. I believe we must market our community and lifestyle to all demographics. We live in “God’s Country” and the opportunities can be endless for families and retirees alike.

6. Recognizing the need for infrastructure upgrades, I believe we must find other funding sources by continuing to apply for grants and by creating new revenue sources such as a Community Forest. The Village cannot impose more financial hardships on its residents through taxation. As a small community, we need to lobby Victoria to acknowledge rural BC and provide the tools and opportunities to empower Clinton and similarly situated communities in our province to turn our economies around.

Health Care and education are also integral to a vibrant community and as such I will work to establish a working relationship with my neighbouring communities as well as I.H.A. and School District 74.

Industry and development go hand in hand, thus, if elected, I will bring the Clinton Hospital Lands subdivision back to the table and work with Economic Development to seek out developers. While causing growth and revenue, this project would create employment and may provide apprentice training.

To become truly sustainable we need services, industry, health care, education, affordable shopping, and residents of all ages to keep local dollars sustaining Clinton.

7. On Nov. 19 I am seeking your support, and your trust that I will work to the best of my ability to move Clinton forward.
