Candidate profile: Lynn McIntosh

Lynn McIntosh is running for Cranbrook city council.

  • Nov. 14, 2014 8:00 p.m.

Citizens of Cranbrook, I have lived in Cranbrook for the past fourteen years raising my children. Over the years I have engaged many people in friendly conversation and listened to your issues. At this time in my life I would like to give back to the Cranbrook Community. I am a team player with innovative ideas.

My broad educational background includes a diploma in Tourism, a diploma in Fish Wildlife and Recreation Management, and Associate of Art diploma in Social Science. My background would be valuable to the position as a councillor member with an understanding of the tourism industry, knowledge of the environmental and forestry issues and respect for social diversity.

Community events are what attract visitors to our city.  Since our high school students need to graduate with community serve or work experience, I would like to create a volunteer day in which community groups can mentor youths. A lot of important work could be completed.  This day would promote community growth, safety, health, partnership, tourism and build future leaders.

Finally, I am committed to building on the positive work of previous councillors.  Learning from the mistakes of past councillors and admitting to my own mistakes. Please on Election Day take the time to vote for a council which best serves the city.
