Leanne Salter is running for a seat on Parksville city council.

In a news release, Salter said she has lived in this area for more than 45 years and attended Nanoose and Errington elementary schools, transferring to Parksville high and graduating from Kwalikum Secondary School.

“As current RDN Area F alternate director and past District 69 Recreation Commission alternate chair, I have demonstrated my commitment to representing the needs of residents at both municipal and regional levels of government,” Salter said in the release.

Salter said she has volunteered on several community boards, including: executive board member, Volunteer Nanaimo; “The Farm” for those with developmental disabilities; launched a volunteer community dental clinic in Nanaimo — CODE; Chair of community dental clinic (in progress) for District 69; Established a volunteer based Transitional Housing Initiative for men at risk of homelessness in Nanaimo; Delegate to the B.C. College of Dental Surgeons Community Dental Clinic Committee; Mid Island lead organizer for Child Find.

“I believe in fiscal responsibility that is directed through community involvement,” she said. “In this, the Englishman River Water Project needs to be re-evaluated and alternate options considered prior to moving forward with the current proposition. Also, OCPs must not be amended without community approval.”
