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 Michelle Riddle:
Voters should choose Michelle Riddle to be a City of Powell River councillor because I am not a politician. I am a businesswoman and a health professional who stands with an ethical stance and an evidence-based perspective.
I am trained as a rehabilitation practitioner and a scientist to question everything. This technique grants opportunity for critical thinking so the true root of any issue can be identified.
With more than 30 years of experience developing functional systems within workplaces, families and communities, I can bring forth the changes that will enable all people of this region to thrive. I am an excellent communicator and although my voice has been presented on international platforms, it is time for me to listen so the word of the people can be heard.
This community is rich in resources. Capitalizing on and enhancing local, sustainable businesses, systems and services will support the health and prosperity of all community members.
Together, we can make this city a model for the world, a place where every person counts and all needs are met.
It is time to champion a ground-up perspective, to plant literal seeds that will flourish to enhance our environment, feed our people and empower our future.
