A Sparwood woman who has had a longtime interest in municipal politics is seeking a seat on district council.
Amy Cardozo has a background as a financial agent and feels that would translate smoothly into a district councillor role.
She has a few things she’d like to see council work towards if she’s elected.
“Economic development and tourism. Being able to support existing businesses as well as strategic planning to help diversify the business community to help start some small businesses and attract other businesses to the community. That’s the one thing that we’re really missing.”
She hopes to foster more transparency through district council if she’s elected.
“One of my goals as a new councillor if I were to be elected is to facilitate some transparency through clear and modern communication channels. I really feel that open communication is really important among the younger generation.”
This is Cardozo’s first time running for council.
The election goes October 20.
