Bronwyn Gisborne is running in the upcoming municipal election in hopes of filling one of the six councillor seats at the City of Powell River Council table.

Eighteen candidates have entered the race to fill six City of Powell River Council seats. The Peak asked each candidate the following question:

Why should voters choose you to be a City of Powell River councillor?

Here is the response from Bronwyn Gisborne:

I grew up in Westview, on Michigan Avenue, and graduated from Brooks Secondary School in 2001.

After graduation, I moved to Victoria to attend college and then university. Some years later, I trained to become a yoga instructor and spent several years moving around Vancouver Island.

Powell River became my permanent home once again in 2014. Since then, I have married, had two children, learned a lot about farming and governance, become a live-in caregiver, and found balance in life.

There are many issues we face in this region, ranging from a lack of housing, lack of child care, rising costs of living and rising taxes. These increased burdens are being placed upon the next generation of this incredible community.

What is concerning is the lack of diverse representation. Council is tasked with addressing these issues, but does not reflect the demographic that is expected to carry the weight of these growing challenges into the future.

In order to overcome our state of decline, we need those experiencing the challenges firsthand to lead and take action.
