Council Candidate: Marguerite Rotvold running in Corporation of the Village of Midway

Corporation of the Village of Midway: Rotvold, Marguerite – Council Candidate

Marguerite Rotvold

 

My name is Marguerite Rotvold and I have lived in Midway since 1981. I was employed at the Port of Midway as a customs officer for 21 years and retired five years ago.

I am a member of the Midway Seniors, Citizens on Patrol, RCMP Consultative Committee that sponsors the Mountie for a Day for Grade 7 students and the free New Years Eve Family Fun Skate. I am village councils representative to the Regional District Kootenay Boundary and West Kootenay Boundary Hospital District and have been elected chair of the 29-member board for the past five years. I am also on the Kettle River Advisory Committee that is doing a study for the sustaining of the Kettle River. I believe that you must be active in your community and contribute as a volunteer to sustain the growth of our community.

Thank you to each and all the volunteers that give their time and service to the organizations and groups that make Midway the community we have today. Thank you to the businesses and owners that work hard to provide services, products and jobs that help sustain our community and residents.

As a member of council I will work towards a sustainable and healthy community and promote Midway as a vibrant and prospering village to work, raise a family and retire in. I will do my best to be aware and act on the concerns and needs of the citizens of Midway. My door is always open to hear issues you may have. I ask the citizens of Midway to allow me to use the knowledge and experience that I have gained over the past 25 years to serve you for the next four years.

I would like your support and vote on Election Day. Please remember to vote on Nov. 15 or advance polls Nov. 5.

Thank you all for your past support for electing me to the previous councils. Thank you to the present mayor and council members. It has been a pleasure to work with you. Hope we can continue to work together.
