Council Candidate: Colleen Lang running in City of Greenwood

City of Greenwood: Lang, Colleen - Council Candidate

Colleen Lang

I had the pleasure of serving the community as an elected official for the past 18 years; Councillor: 1996-2002, Mayor: 2002-2011 and re-elected as Councillor: 2011-2014. My deepest appreciation to the electorate for placing their trust in me.

During my six terms I have served seventeen years on the Finance and Personnel Committee maintaining fiscal responsibility and transparency.

I have been the liaison to the Greenwood Volunteer Fire Department and also liaison to the RCMP Community Consultative Group and Boundary Citizens on Patrol.

I have proven leadership skills and have been effective in initiating positive changes at the table throughout the years. I have always commended and supported our community volunteers, promoted our local businesses and patronized various community events.

I am currently into my sixteenth year as president of the Greenwood Community Association having served 23 years as an active member working bingo, hall rentals and helping maintain a city asset. I am the recording secretary of the Greenwood Heritage Society. I have a proven track record in cohesively working with others and my ability to think and vote independently.

During this term Council, despite challenges, was effective in making some very positive decisions. We were successful in many ways of focusing attention on clean air, water and protecting the environment and addressing health needs of our community. Visual improvements were made through the bench program, cemetery fence, signage etc. and provincial and federal funded projects.

If re-elected I will continue to serve the community as I have in the past through a proactive approach and by leading by example in a fair and unbiased manner. It is extremely important to have Experience, Knowledge, Continuity and Respect at the table.

On Nov. 15 please re-elect Lang to City Council. “Together we can make a difference.“
