Meet the candidates: Renee Kyle

Web Lead

Renee Kyle is seeking election to Creston town council.

I will start by making a promise: I will be accessible to everyone and I will listen to what you have to say. To do my job as councillor, I will need to know what you want. It is not my vision or even the town council’s vision, but the vision of the people living and working in Creston that will build a strong community. You can call, email or Facebook me.

I will book the Library once a month to meet with you face-to-face. My first meeting will be before the election at the library on Nov. 14 from 10 a.m.-1 p.m. I hope to see you there.

What I have already heard and will hear from the people of Creston is, what will drive what I will try to accomplish as a councillor? I will encourage the growth of the town. Creston needs to attract new people and keep our own young adults here. To accomplish this, new business and industry should be established. It is also my aim to support locally owned and operated small businesses.

Equally important, Creston must be an attractive, healthy, vibrant and safe place to live. Arts and culture must be supported because they are an integral part to a fulfilling and unique community. A commitment to a strong social services network, including programs for the youth of Creston, affordable housing for everyone, and safety on the streets and in the home, is also essential to Creston.

I am running for council because I really love living and working in Creston. I would like to bring my insights, ideas, talents, strengths and expertise to council.

Please contact me at 250-428-8839, or like “KYLE for Town of Creston council” on Facebook.

The Advance asked each candidate for Creston town council and mayor, Regional District of Central Kootenay director and School District No. 8 (Kootenay Lake) trustee — as well as acclaimed directors Garry Jackman (Area A) and Larry Binks (Area C) — to submit about 300 words to describe their goals, background, qualifications, concerns — whatever mattered to them. Of the 27 candidates, only two, Jackman and Creston town council candidate Louis Mihaly, chose not to make a submission.
