One of Fernie’s new city councilors says residents want more representation.
Morgan Pulsifer is one of four new councilors elected for Fernie council with no prior council experience.
Pulsifer says the new council candidates were more diverse then they had in previous elections.
He says once he takes office he wants to increase the number of council meetings and make them more accessible to the public.
“That means moving our meetings from Monday mornings to evenings,” Pulsifer says. “That way more people from the public can attend, really that’s a pretty simple consensus to meet.”
Also new to Fernie council are Kyle Hamilton, Yvonne Marie Prest, and Troy Nixon.
