Sandra Smith

It would be a privilege and a pleasure to be your Director for Area I.

I offer responsive and responsible representation. I am a fresh face and a commitment to full-time representation for issues of importance to the Regional District and to Area I.  I offer a commitment to value for your tax dollars for issues from better roads to optimal delivery of public services.

My work experience in a regional library system gave me an understanding of the efficiencies of collaboration for mutual benefit and over the years I believe I have built up skills in collaboration and communication. I would like to put those skills to use in Area I.

I have lived in British Columbia for the last fifty years and my thirty years of work experience in newspapers and libraries has always taught me that my public knows best and everyone is best served if we work together and find a way to provide for the public what is needed and wanted. I am a public servant and with your vote I look forward to working with you and building upon the good work that has been done.

The unique topography of Area I offers challenges but also similarities and those similarities make it possible to maintain our uniqueness while building on our common similarities. There is good fortune, and I believe democracy is well served, in having such a strong field of candidates for you to choose from in Area I.

Comments or questions for me can be sent to me at Please vote on Saturday, November 19.
