Dolores Fraser is running for a seat on Qualicum Beach town council.
“During our past 10 years here in this community I’ve attended many meetings and heard many people’s concerns,” Fraser said in a news release. “I’ve attended conferences dealing with municipal issues. I’ve volunteered at the high school, the S.P.C.A. and for Fire and Ice. I’ve co-managed election campaign offices and I’ve been a trustee and secretary of both the federal and provincial associations’ local executives. My knowledge of the three levels of government would be beneficial to Council. I have experience working as a team to reach consensus and make things happen.”
“I believe that development can be done in a manner that respects the OCP and follows the proper process,” Fraser said. “Height restrictions are important. Development Cost Charges should generally not be decreased but I believe they are a tool that can be flexible when it is to the town’s benefit. I believe an enhanced dialogue between council and the community, using committees, would lead to creative ideas that grow the community in agreed upon, environmentally responsible ways. I understand that strong leadership involves ongoing learning and listening. I am not afraid to stand up for what is right and, if elected, I will work hard to protect the public interest.”
