A candidate in Sparwood’s 2014 Municipal Election wants another chance at the mayoral race.
Joanne Wilton is the manager of the Causeway Bay Hotel and is campaigning to be the District’s Mayor.
She says she’s passionate about the community and would like to see some major projects move forward.
“Teck Resources and Joy Global bought property on the other side of the highway, that’s the project that’s happening here right now. So I’d like to see those build-outs happen,” Wilton says. “I’d like to see Whiskey Jack settled, I’d like to see the golf course happening.”
Wilton says more can be done for dust management in the community, including more communication between the District and Teck.
“Everyone is very upset about the dust at Teck. I think that Teck is a responsible employer,” Wilton says. “However, I think that the District needs to stay in contact with Teck all the time, making sure they are doing their best.”
The Municipal Election is set for October 20th.
