Councillor candidates cont.

1. What do you see as the biggest election issue, and how will you address it
ANSWER: Restoring confidence in voters so they can trust in our abilities as elected officials to carry out necessary changes for the future of Lloydminster.
2. What do you bring to the table, re: experience, etc.
ANSWER: My previous experience as a staff member of the City of Lloydminster has given me insight to the process and procedure of council matters. I understand council responsibilities are heavy and I am prepared to bring extra conversation to the decision table as a voice for the voters.
3. If elected, what will your spending priorities be?
ANSWER: Infrastructure, one example is linking individuals and families in the community to various resources via transit: work, play, education/school and programs for improved access to all.
4. Lloydminster seems to be the awkward, inconvenient child of Alberta and Saskatchewan. What would you do to break down that border so Lloyd gets its share of provincial money?
ANSWER: To initiate a resource to specifically focus on developing relationships with the respective provincial & federal governments. 
5. The last election saw an abysmal 11 per cent of us turn out to vote.
How are you running your campaign to get more people out to the polls, especially the younger voters?
ANSWER: Participating in discussion groups and encouraging voter turn out via social media, various events and meeting the voters at any given opportunity leading up to the forum all the way through to the election day on October 26.
(Ed. note: please pick up next Tuesday’s edition of your Lloydminster Source for the rest of the slate, as well as Catholic School Board candidates.)
