Fraser Lake: Clark, Lynn – councillor candidate

My name is Lynn Clark and I have been a resident of the Fraser Lake north shore for 17 years. I am employed by Nechako Valley Community Services Society as an early childhood development consultant, am currently the chairperson of the Fraser Lake Early Childhood Development Committee and am also a respite foster parent.

The things that are most important to me are my family, education/personal/spiritual growth and water conservation.

I will make a good council person because through my work and personal life I have contact with a broad cross section of community members and am very approachable. I take my commitments very seriously and do everything within my power to follow through on them. I am financially responsible and respectful of other peoples hard earned money. I have also sat on a broad range of society and non profit boards in the various communities I have lived in.

The things I would most like to see in Fraser Lake are first and foremost road improvements, and secondly more services for seniors to enable aging in place. In order to attract and retain young families I would like to see an increase in the number and types of recreational opportunities available to children and youth such a more toddler friendly playgrounds, incentives for sports team coaches and BMX trails. I also would like to see the vision of summer businesses down at White Swan Park revisited and the road to the park become more of a focal point in order to build on the tourism potential of being the White Swan capital of the world. Further to this I would like to see a greater effort put in to the development of the Municipal Development Park. I would also like to be given the opportunity to follow through on some things community members have suggested such as a dog park, more garbage cans and year round outhouses.
