Heidi Abbott is seeking a seat on Parksville city council.

In a news release, Abbot said she is well prepared for the task, with a passion for the city, life-long learning and community engagement.

“We can find innovative solutions for any problems we face,” she said. “It is important for us to take part in the decision making process; and make ourselves heard.”

Abbot said she thinks Parksville can grow as a strong, vibrant and healthy community.

“We can build our economy without sacrificing those things we hold dear, like our environment and lifestyle.”

She said she will work to make Parksville the kind of place where people will choose to settle; where people who have businesses are able to make a decent living; where people who just want to get from one place to another can do so safely whether they walk, bike or drive.

Abbott lives in Parksville and has been in the area for more than 30 years. She has a Bachelor of Commerce degree and is currently working on a Master’s degree in Community Development.

You can reach Abbott through a website (www.ourparksville.ca), by e-mail (heidi@ourparksville.ca), on Facebook (facebook: heidiabbott4parksville) or on Twitter (@islandheidi).
