  • Nov. 14, 2014 7:00 a.m.

Danielle Cardozo is a first time municipal candidate, but no stranger to community development. Danielle is the Business Development Coordinator for St. Mary’s Band (Aq’am) and their development corporation, Aq’am Community Enterprises (ACE). Her focus with the organizations is to build economic revenue, while maintaining the community culture and values.

Danielle plans to bring this community focused strategy to the City of Cranbrook, by being a Councilor who has current, first hand economic experience in community development. Revenue brought in through development can then be used to support infrastructure growth, social programming, healthcare expansion; as well arts and culture initiative.

As a member of Council, Danielle will dedicate her time to educating herself about the residents’ priorities. She believes in thinking outside the box and looks forward to bringing a new perspective and fresh solutions to infrastructure and social issues.  Danielle will bring the same passion to the City, as she has in her position with Aq’am and ACE.

While not related to political policy and decision making, Danielle’s recent appearance on MasterChef Canada shows her ability to represent Cranbrook with integrity. It is also a shining example of her ambition, dedication, and work ethic. She is willing to put herself out there in order to succeed.
