Stacey looks for third term

I am a longtime resident with solid community roots, a former Capitol Theatre manager, and a two-term council veteran.

Marg Stacey has served two terms on Nelson city council and is seeking a third.

Margaret Stacey: Bio

I am a longtime resident with solid community roots, a former Capitol Theatre manager, and a two-term council veteran.

My portfolios have included economic development, the social sector, the youth centre advisory team, the recreation commission, the airport advisory, and the advisory planning commission. I was recently on the team that managed the delivery of the Sustainable Downtown and Waterfront Master Plan.

Why am I running? There are some newly planned elements of all these areas that I’d like to see launched. I’m avidly interested in the business of the city, and now have solid experience in city processes to serve our citizens.

Top 3 issues

1. My first and foremost priority for Nelson is community security. Another word for it would be stewardship — protecting our investments in people and their pursuits, protecting infrastructure and local environment.

2. The forward part of civic stewardship is community development, which to me means going beyond protection and security into planning for the future, enhancing our assets, becoming creatively ready for impacts of exterior forces, always looking for innovative opportunities to do these things.

3. My third priority is how we achieve these goals of stewardship and community development. In a world of silos, cohesion is the answer. We must find ways to communicate thoroughly, always hold to our strong sense of community, continually find partners, and co-operate regionally. Co-operation brings down costs and enhances services to citizens.
