PLANNING OUR FUTURE ... PROTECTING OUR

Elect Gail Ardiel

Gail and her husband Shane are the proud parents of four grown children, and they have operated Apple Springs Orchards Ltd, since 1984 and three Day Care Centre's since 1987.

BUSINESS EXPERIENCE

As part of a local farming family and owner of two thriving day cares and a Before/After School program for the past 26 years, I have gained valuable experience, and knowledge in financial matters. The experience of working with budgets within realistic limits has enabled me to thrive for these years.

INVOLVEMENT

My previous 13 years in council gave me the opportunity to learn more and bring more knowledge to my job as Deputy Mayor. Past councils would tell you that I attend to every meeting totally prepared and informed. And, part of being informed comes from involving the residents in the decision making process. In running a home, running a business and helping to run our farm I have to use planning, organizing and management skills. They are the same skill required to be an effective Deputy Mayor.

COMMITMENT

Since 1997 when I was first elected to Council, I was committed to this town. I am still committed to working tirelessly to ensure we have the best future for all of our residents. I am committed to creating a place where elderly neighbours living on fixed incomes, can afford to stay in their homes and where our youth will have opportunities to grow, learn and stay in the community.

ACCOUNTABLE

In every election, the candidates promise the voters that they will be accountable. Yet, we continue to see decisions made that do not reflect the wishes or views of the majority of taxpayers. To be accountable to the electorate, a politician must consult with the public; must share the decision making procedure with the public and must publish, for all to see, their voting record; their attendance at meetings; their expenses and any information that is required to ensure the residents are informed and can contribute to intelligent decisions about their future.
