Shawnigan Lake – Here’s why I am supporting Sonia Furstenau for Area B director (Shawnigan).
1. She will be a strong voice for the community. Sonia has been a leader in the campaign against the contaminated soils issue in the area.
2. She is an effective communicator. Shawnigan’s history of fractious groups has been detrimental to a coordinated, positive growth. She has demonstrated the ability to bring people together to work on a common goal.
3. She has a positive vision. Shawnigan’s economic growth, especially in the village core, has been stagnant. Sonia’s platform includes building a community investment fund to support local businesses that have a progressive vision.
