A candidate in Cranbrook’s by-election feels there’s a total disconnect between council and the community.
Lynn McIntosh ran unsuccessfully in the 2014 Municipal Election
She says in the three years since, major issues around safety have been left untouched.
“I’ve been trying to get our city councillors to respond to some of the concerns like Innes Avenue not being safe for pedestrians,” McIntosh says. “Also getting the park shut down during fire season, because we do have problems inside those parks and they are not doing a very good job on public safety.”
She feels the current council does not understand the issues of the community.
“Most important issue for me is making sure we have a city council person that represents the people and will speak to the people,” McIntosh says. “Right now, I don’t feel any of our councillors are doing a very good job on that one, but making sure we can connect with councillors and get answers.”
McIntosh has lived in the Key City for 17 years volunteering with community events.
The single mother owns a house on Elizabeth Lake that she wants to turn into a wetland community centre.
Voters will head to the polls October 21st.
