Wagner to run for city council

Parksville mother wants to bridge gap between city’s diverse generations

Amanda Wagner has announced her candidacy for a council position with the City of Parksville.

In a press release, Wagner said she is a stay-at-home mother with a strong background in administration, writing and the arts. She said she is tenacious with a passion for research and continual learning.

“I am committed to doing the best job I can to represent the people of Parksville, people that have become my community and family,” she said.

If elected to council, Wagner will focus on matters of:

Health and well-being by working with local groups to improve access to services and providers, and addressing concerns of community safety.

Families by creating a welcoming environment for young families to the area and building connections between our generationally diverse community.

Affordable housing by following up on current initiatives and encouraging future development. Businesses by drawing innovative and diverse businesses to the area, supporting our homegrown entrepreneurs and addressing responsibilities of currently vacant commercial buildings.

“I look forward to working with the community of Parksville, members of council, and city staff to see a vibrant, bustling downtown core, places where our youth, families and elders can come together to connect and celebrate our diversity,” Wagner said. “Parksville is a leader and an example to other communities throughout our province; let’s continue to be so.”
