Candidate profile: Diana J. Scott

Diana J. Scott is running for Cranbrook city council.

  • Nov. 14, 2014 6:00 p.m.

Diana J. Scott is running for her 3rd term as councillor for the City of Cranbrook.  Of all the candidates running, she is the only one with more than one term under her belt in Cranbrook.  “I think it is important to have that experience, that history, especially as some of our key long-time staff either have retired or will be retiring soon”.

Looking back at her election platforms from 2008 and 2011, they both focused on economic growth and the importance of being business friendly.  “I have advocated on behalf of business the entire time I have been in office”.

Having said that, Scott is not a one issue person.  She believes council also has to invest in things that will give Cranbrook residents a great quality of life, like parks and trails.  She also believes council needs to stay focused on council issues and not try to be everything to everyone.

Scott came to Cranbrook in 2000 to work as the morning news anchor at The Drive / B104 radio station.  She currently runs two businesses.

Scott is looking to turn her 6 years at council into 10, with your support.  She asks for your vote November 15th.
