My name is Gary Schierbeck and I am running for councillor for the Village of Midway. The reason I am running for council is that I care about Midway and I believe that I can help make Midway a better place. Midway has so much to offer now through sports and recreation but it could offer so much more if we develop it in a positive and responsible way. I believe that we have to work harder promoting economic development, we have to recruit industry, small and large to invest in our community which creates jobs and jobs are what it will take to get families to move to Midway.
Midway is a great place for retirement and we have to promote it. We have to have growth to keep our community prosperous and sustainable. We also have to continue on having a good working relationship with our neighbouring communities and regional district agencies such as Interior Health, Boundary Economic Development Commission and the Boundary Country Regional Chamber of Commerce. Midway has now been awarded a Community Forest and the next few years is an opportunity for Midway to Grow and Prosper. We still have a lot of work to do and I want to be a part of that, so on Nov. 15 I ask you for your vote to help make that happen.
