A former staff member with the City of Fernie wants to be elected as Mayor.
Former Facility Coordinator Sharon Switzer is bringing twenty years of experience with the city into Fernie’s mayoral race.
She feels she will bring a lot of knowledge into the role.
“I started out in finance, but I mostly concentrated my time there in special events and recreation,” Switzer says. “So I did all of the facility coordination, booking of the arena, the community center, the field, the parks. Just working with user groups, working with tourism.”
Switzer feels discussions around short-term rental still needs more work, but the city is moving in the right direction.
Switzer would also like to see a long term asset management and maintenance plan drafted by the city.
She has also been involved in a number of community groups in the Elk Valley.
Switzer joins current Mayor Mary Giuliano and current Councillor Ange Qualizza in the mayoral race.
