Iannidinardo aims to finish what she started in Cowichan Bay

Lori Iannidinardo announced last week that she will be seeking another term in office as the electoral area director for Cowichan Bay.

Iannidinardo has represented Area D at the Cowichan Valley Regional District for the last two terms, and says she’s up for one more.

"It want to run to finish up some of the things that I’ve already started and to continue working for the community," she said.

During her tenure, a new official community plan setting the stage for the future of the seaside village has been completed, a task in which Iannidinardo is proud to have played a vital role.

The zoning bylaws for the OCP, including one for the marine portion of the community, are still underway, and she said she’d like to be able to see those completed.

Her experience at the CVRD board table is a big strength, she said.

"It takes actually a few years to understand all of the system and the nuances. There’s a lot to know in a regional district and a lot to learn about. So I’m feeling now that I have more of a grasp of a lot of that, so I would like to continue," Iannidinardo said.

It’s all about serving the community, she said, which is why she has an open door policy and is always willing to listen.

"Everybody matters," says Lori. "And

I believe it is possible to create jobs and diversify our economy while at the same time, protect our watershed and our environment."

Some things she sees that still need to be worked on in the future are the issue of freighters and where they are anchoring, derelict ships, and parks and trails development.
