Faust has backed Blewett

Three years ago, when Ramona Faust became our regional director, Blewett acquired representation in the RDCK for the very first time

Three years ago, when Ramona Faust became our regional director, Blewett acquired representation in the RDCK for the very first time. Prior to three years ago, many Blewett residents had no idea which area (E) we were part of much less who our director was.

Ramona has made the effort to involve Blewett in what is a very oddly shaped area (Harrop-Procter to the outskirts of Nelson to Blewett). She has included representatives from Blewett on advisory committees, sent us regular updates about the work of the RDCK, attended community meetings and potlucks and generally made herself available to residents. She has proven to me that she is a conscientious, community-based hard worker.

We are thrilled, thanks to her work, to finally be receiving bus service. Myself and many others lobbied for this service for 15 years. Now youth won’t have to rely on parents and hitchhiking to get into town. Seniors and commuters will have other options too, particularly in bad weather.

In my conversations with her, I have seen how much Ramona genuinely cares about people and how she has focussed her efforts on bringing both ease and sustainability to the lives of regular folks.

I sincerely hope that she has the opportunity to continue all the ongoing projects she’s involved in at the RDCK.
