Council Candidate: Darla Ashton running in City of Greenwood

City of Greenwood: Ashton, Darla - Council Candidate

Darla Ashton

My name is Darla Ashton and I am running for City Council for the City of Greenwood. I have been a resident of Greenwood for nearly 50 years. I have seen many changes to Greenwood’s council over the years and feel that we are on the cusp of having a strong team that can work collaboratively for the betterment of all the residents of Greenwood.

I can tell you that as an incumbent in this year’s election, I bring to the table fairness and accountability for our hard-earned tax dollars. With a strong mandate in the last election, I would like the opportunity to continue as I feel a sense of responsibility to the taxpayers who instilled in me their support.

My associations outside of public municipal life have given me a great deal of experience and an opportunity to build networks that are invaluable to this community. From grant opportunities to just plain hard work I can assure you that Greenwood is my utmost priority.

I support a welcoming City Hall with an open-door policy to new residents and new businesses. I believe we must encourage growth and economic development when possible. We must continue to look for grants that can improve our aging infrastructure and increase our tax base.

I feel that I have a number of qualities that I can bring to City Council. I am a hard-worker, have good time management skills and am dedicated to our community. I would like to continue to be a part of a council that can begin legacies that future councils can build on.

By supporting me, you support someone who will be professional and who will champion this community regionally, provincially and federally. I will work hard as a steward for Greenwood.

Don’t forget to vote Nov. 15
