Fraser Lake: Brophy, Jeanette – councillor candidate

I have lived in Fraser Lake almost 50 years and I feel it’s time for some change. What I have noticed is the need for a new perspective on council. We should bring in new people with new ideas. I would also love to see better communication from council to the members of our community and more encouragement to the public to attend council meetings and feel comfortable to do so.

Fraser Lake is the place I raised my daughter and where my husband and I call home. We had a successful logging business working for the West Fraser Sawmill for 39 years but I am retired now and volunteer at Autumn Services Community Dropin Centre.

As an avid volunteer, I have helped various organizations over the years starting with being a brownie leader. I have worked with mental health organizations in support groups, facilitating both the Family to Family and Bridges programs. I also sat on two mental health boards in Vancouver and have enjoyed helping Meals on Wheels in Fraser Lake. Another one of my accomplishments have been volunteering for the Fraser Lake and Area Cancer Support Group. We have raised in excess of $30,000 by local fundraising with additional revenue through Angels Care, a store front we ran for little over a year. I am a good candidate for council because I care about the vision people in Fraser Lake want for their community and will work hard to see those visions realized.

Having worked as the administrative assistant for the Village of Fraser Lake for several years, I have sat in on council meetings, took minutes, calculated payments and bank deposits for the Village, and more. I know where the money is spent and I would love to be a voice for the people to make sure it is spent wisely. I hope to see some change in the near future and to be a part of making that happen.
