Skipsey seeks Qualicum Beach council seat

Town of Qualicum Beach: Skipsey, Anne — town council candddate

  • Oct. 21, 2014 5:00 p.m.

Anne Skipsey is running for a seat on Qualicum Beach town council in the Nov. 15 civic election.

“I am running for council to bring a different demographic and perspective to the council table,” Skipsey said in a news release. “Raised in Qualicum Beach by parents who strongly valued volunteerism and community involvement, I have an innate desire to make a difference. My 15 years working in local government administration provided me with a respect for process and insight into the workings of a municipality. I believe what is special about Qualicum Beach — its uniqueness, good planning and spirit of community — needs to be celebrated and nurtured.”

Skipsey said she has been working with community-minded people to create a community education and wellness society, to help foster interactions between generations.

“I believe the attraction, retention and engagement of youth and young families will help ensure vibrancy and economic wellbeing. I want to see: citizen committees and engagement; improved transit service; affordable housing; environmental initiatives; respect for the OCP; a thriving downtown and sustainable development. Fiscal responsibility means focusing on needs as opposed to wants. I don’t have a hidden agenda. I want a friendly, healthy and sustainable community in which to live and raise my son.”
