Diana LaMonte is running for Qualicum Beach town council.
LaMonte said in a news release that as a member of council she would be “committed to support and maintain our ‘village’ atmosphere by following the Official Community Plan. I pledge to promote responsible and sustainable growth, encourage affordable housing for young families, and protect our rich natural resources and unique environment. I will be the people’s voice on council.”
LaMonte said her background includes 20 years in healthcare as an award-winning Practical Nurse in Geriatric Dementia Care. “I have been a resident of Qualicum Beach since 2009 as a resident of Kiwanis Village until we were displaced due to the new construction. I have been a featured speaker for the Task Force on Homelessness Symposium in 2012 and the Qualicum Park Village Ground Breaking in 2014. I was a member in good standing of BCGEU nursing union from 1992 until 1995 and BCNU from 2013 until present.”
“I am running to be the voice of all the residents of Qualicum Beach and want the people to feel that I listen to all of their concerns. I am unbiased and have no vested interests.”
