TNRD Area E candidate Sally Watson

Incumbent Director Sally Watson is seeking her fourth term as Area E Director on the TNRD board

  • Nov. 6, 2011 3:00 p.m.

1. I have lived in TNRD Area E for 25 years.

2. I am the current TNRD Director as well as working part-time for Canada Post as a Rural Mail Carrier.

3. When I first moved to 70 Mile, I worked with a  group of Moms who put on an Annual Hallowe’en Party at the 70 Mile Community Hall, worked on a Community Float for the 100 Mile and Clinton Parades, and joined the 70 Mile Gymkhana Club.

When we moved closer to Clinton I volunteered with the Clinton Gymkhana Club and was on the executive of the Clinton Team Penners. Moving back to 70 Mile House, I helped with the Jack Rabbit Cross Country Ski Program at the 70 Mile Elementary and after the School closed was instrumental in creating the Seventy Mile Access Centre and was on that board for eight years.

I have been involved in the Cariboo Trails Carriage Driving Event for five years and am currently working with Opportunity Cariboo on housing and social issues in our area.

4. I have served as the TNRD Director for the past three terms.

5. It is most important to me to represent the issues of my constituents at the TNRD Board. The TNRD Solid Waste Management Plan and Local Economic Development creating “Real Jobs” that pay enough for people to raise families, buy homes and volunteer in the community.

6. The TNRD Solid Waste Management Plan is our biggest challenge; I believe that it is time to go back, re-open the plan and change it to reflect information we now have regarding recycling and the reduction of waste that we have now are dealing with. The Western Region of the TNRD should work together to market and attract industry to the area; as long as we work separately we are competing on the same projects. Work together or lose everything.

7. There are “Global Projects” that the TNRD Board deals with: Solid Waste Management should be one of these and I believe that Kamloops City needs to be at that table as a full partner thus putting a stop to the “who pays for what” argument that we end up in.
