Sharon Cross, is a current City Councillor. She engages with all sectors of the community, responding to concerns in an inclusive manner.

Cross manages a small business and understands business sector issues. She supported the Downtown Business Revitalization Tax Exemption Bylaw, and works hard to maintain affordable tax rates for services and infrastructure renewal.

Cross walks the talk and brings people together to see projects through to completion. She assists in Physician recruitment; helps to identify child care gaps so parents can work; volunteered for major events including the Gran Fondo and Orienteering; and supports the arts, culture and heritage.

For the future, Cross envisions a strong urban agricultural and greenhouse industry to create employment and provide a secure, reliable food source, so that more of our dollars circulate locally.
