Sharon Cross has announced she will be running for re-election in the November 2014 municipal election. Cross currently serves as a member of city council.

Sharon Cross has confirmed she will be seeking re-election in the upcoming November 2014 municipal election.

Cross has served as a member of council since 2001. She noted that she had a proven track record with 100 per cent attendance at council meetings, bringing people together and seeing projects through to completion.

She has also worked on the doctor shortage task force and the child care needs assessment.

Cross said one of her priorities is ensuring a balance.

“The economic, environmental, social, arts and cultural pillars need to be balanced,” Cross said. “For example, the floods and drought in North America, in areas that we call our ‘food basket’ mean we must prepare now for a more local, secure, safe, and sustainable agricultural sector.  The employment potential would boost our local economy.”

Cross said a healthy, vibrant community comes through communication, collaboration and creative thinking, as well as ensuring the above needs are balanced with prudent use of tax dollars and responsible, planned development.

Cross worked previously in economic research, broadcasting and educational administration. She currently manages Joseph Cross’s Art Studio.

Cross chairs the city’s Environment and Utilities Committee, and Family and Community Services Committee. Listening to where there is a need, she takes action representing the broader community and taxpayers interests.
