Corinne Scott thanked the Chamber for hosting this event and the candidates for the choice they offered the community. She explained she and her husband moved to Kitimat because they believed it was the best place to retire because of the beauty and the boating but also because of the low housing prices, doctors and health care.
She spoke of the problems facing Kitimat: “The closure of a major industry, the loss of jobs, the erosion of our Health Care System and the arguments and problems within Council Administration,” said Scott.
“I have had the pleasure of working with positive groups of individuals on the retire Kitimat Task Force and Kitimat Advisory Planning Commission.”
She expressed she was asked to run for Council when her municipal background and experience were discovered. She stated she was the only candidate with municipal experience as an Elected Official, Administration and as a Municipal Manager. She has worked with unions and all levels of government.
“My specialty became assisting municipalities with change,” said Scott. “I offer my education and experience to the residents of Kitimat.”
She stated we need to protect the services in the town, especially health care, develop additional marina space around the community, pursue relationships with neighbours and attract new businesses and industry.
