Affordable housing, fiscal responsiblity important to Duncan city council hopeful Carol Newington

I recognize the importance of keeping Duncan Green, Clean and Safe!

Carol Newington is running for a seat on Duncan city council.

I recognize the importance of keeping Duncan Green, Clean and Safe!

Born and raised in Duncan, I moved to Ontario where I raised my family and returned to my hometown in 2005.

I am a taxpaying resident of Duncan with a strong sense of community.

I worked at Queen Margaret’s School Equestrian Centre until June of 2016, when I retired. I volunteer with the hospital auxiliary and the Cowichan Music Festival.

I am thrilled to have the opportunity to support you on issues that are important to you and work with the Duncan city council team.

Common sense fiscal responsibility is very important as our city grows. Infrastructure in the city is aging and council needs to find an economical, long term solution for the future of this community.

We need to find solutions for affordable, safe housing in this city that will be of benefit to the residents and the community.

I will work with the Downtown Business Association to ensure a city core that will be the centre of the Cowichan Valley.

As our climate changes we need to find solutions for our water sustainability.

As a former Scouts Canada leader and youth coach, the health, wellness and safety of our youth is extremely important to our future and should be supported in this community.

Please, come out and vote!

I am available at newingtonc@yahoo.ca or 250-709-0469.
