Vanderhoof: Roberge, Michelle – councillor candidate

My name is Michelle Roberge and I have chosen to run for Council. As a Councillor I will be part of the team that discusses and plans for the immediate and long-term health of Vanderhoof. I define Vanderhoof’s health as its social wellbeing, uniqueness along Highway 16, affordability, environment, and fine balance between rural and urban life. All aspects of the community, from roads to its citizens to economic growth, contribute to its health.

Although I was not raised in Vanderhoof and it is not my official ‘hometown’, I have chosen it as the hometown for my children, a decision not taken lightly. I have a deep appreciation for the community and what it has provided me – employment, involvement in my children’s education, recreation, and the chance to expand my skill set.

Over the past 13 years I have participated in events and projects in Vanderhoof that support community spirit, public education, and the local economy. My involvement in these projects has ranged from the ground level volunteer to project leader and communications. What I bring to these projects is physical and mental ability, a regard for process, and the willingness to think and discuss open-mindedly about options and possible outcomes.

Living here has given me the opportunity and the courage to challenge myself with new ventures and experiences. Many times I have had the opportunity to show my children what it means to start something new, what it means to be a part of something bigger then themselves, and what it means to get involved in something that matters to them. Vanderhoof matters to me.

I value where I live, I value hard work and I value a challenge. Being elected as Councillor of the District of Vanderhoof will be the next challenge that I know will be hard work, but worth it for the wonderful place I live.
