Sylvia Nelson, local business owner and Insurance Broker runs for Town Council
After 15 years in the insurance business, I feel it is time to run for public office and learn more about the Town of Coronach and its operation. I have been actively involved in the Chamber of Commerce since buying my business, Coronach Agencies, in 2004. As a member of the business community, I feel that I could contribute to council with my experience and optimism about life in rural Saskatchewan. I have lived in many rural communities, and would like to bring my knowledge to the Council board table. My personal focus at this time would be on Main Street and the entrances to Coronach and how they impact on residents, businesses and visitors. I want to work for all residents of Coronach to maintain and improve our quality of life here and open the lines of communication between Tourism, the Chamber of Commerce, and Council.
I am seeking re-election for councillor for the Town of Coronach. My wife Angela and I have lived in the community of Coronach since 1984.
I am presently Deputy Major for the Town of Coronach and have been on council for two terms. I have volunteered on many boards over the past twenty five years to help make the community of Coronach a great place to live. I am presently chairperson for the Coronach Economic Development Committee, Member of the Coronach Fire Association, Director for South Central Enterprise Region, Director for South Central Community Futures and a volunteer fireman on the Coronach and District Fire Department.
Awarded the Saskatchewan Economic Development Association, Citizen of the year Award for 2009.
If re elected I will work to keep moving the Community of Coronach forward to ensure this community is a great place to live and call home.
Hello, my name is Guy Hiltz, I am currently employed by Sherritt Coal as the Safety Advisor. I have lived in Coronach for over 25 years. I've been married for almost 20 years and we have 2 children. I have had the opportunity to represent the community in numerous venues, including coaching and Board representation: Trustee for Borderland SD, Minor Hockey Board, and Secretary for the Recreation Board. For the past three years I have been a member of Town Council. The current council and its partners are continuing to find new initiatives to help us achieve our goal of two doctors in our community. The ability to re-establish our community's essential service status remains one of my top priorities. Coronach residents can also expect me to support community beautification projects, recreation facilities, street improvements as well as maintaining fiscal responsibility. I look forward to your support on October 28.
I am the Coronach Economic Development Officer. In the past 3 years, I have been responsible for the research & development of grants (with success in excess of $800,000.00), bringing rural community development to the forefront
(through projects and partners), advocating for services (i.e. South East Regional
College classes, access to technology, and library), and working with local & regional partners on physician recruitment and retention strategies. I currently sit
on 16 local/regional boards and was recently acclaimed the Prairie South School Division (ward 4) Trustee. I bring a wealth of expertise and access to partnerships to this table. I have received many prestigious awards for my accomplishments, including, the Economic Development Officer of the year for SK. I understand the needs and pressures of rural living, and will continue to work diligently to create a community that is positive, sustainable and, by far, the best place to live, work and raise a family.
Hello I am Dot Lewis and I have decided to run for the position of councilor for the town of Coronach this year.
I moved to Coronach on April 10th, 1994 and Keith and our children moved down on August 1st, 1994 after we sold the house in Saskatoon. We use to own the old Mother's Oven Restaurant till we shut it down. Now I am a homemaker.
I decided to run for council mainly because of two reasons and both have to deal with council meetings and never getting a straight answer on my concerns.
I want to make it my policy that any concerns that my door is always open to them and that people can feel they can phone me and they will get answers back in writing.
Being a councilor means that I work for the people of Coronach it never should be what can it do for me.
I would like the opportunity to serve on the Town Council to help our community grow. Being born and raised in Coronach, this is home to me. My husband Claude, and I built our home, family and business in Coronach. Coronach is an integral part of Saskatchewan with it's coal mining industry and power generating station, generating jobs and product for our community. Coronach has been overlooked in it's importance to the province and it is time to put us on the map. Being an industrial tour guide for the Poplar River Mine and Plant, I truly believe that coal produced power can and should be expanded right here in Coronach. This industry can and should offer continued growth and amenities for our community. Even though we have many amenities now, we still need more - we need a doctor, and we need continued recreation and education for both our seniors and our youth. I believe I can offer valuable experience towards building our community.
My wife, Tereena and I have been residents of Coronach since 1999. I am a proud family man with four children. I am in my twelfth year working at SaskPower and am currently working as an apprentice mechanic.
I am currently holding a position as councillor and am actively involved with the Coronach Rec Board. Some of my past positions that I have held have been the Coronach Minor Hockey Board, Coronach Minor Ball and Coronach Kinsmen The one thing that I take great pride in is that I have been coaching in Minor Hockey or Minor Ball for the past 15 years.
I am very excited to be running for councillor for a second term. Some of my initiatives that I would like to see for our community for most would be acquiring a doctor. I would like to continue to see town beautification as well as the future upgrades to our infrastructure. I look forward to serving you.
My name is Tom McLay and our family moved to Coronach in Aug.1980.
My wife, Lorrie and I joined the Kinsmen and Kinettes and we were also involved with several volunteer groups in town. This involvement lead me into being interested in running for town council in the Oct.1994 election. I have been on council since then and have enjoyed the work required to serve the community. There are some very difficult decisions that have to be made in our town. Some of these decisions may not be popular with all our constituents. I enjoy the discussions and debates at the meetings and I truly believe that all of the decisions made have the best interest of the town in mind. I hope my experience on town council will enable me to better serve our community.
My name is Emerson Jones. For those new to our community I have been councillor for the past six years and I am seeking your support for re-election.
Coronach has been our home for the past 17 years and I am proud to call this community home.
During my terms on council we have been faced with many problems, none so serious and on going as doctor recruitment and retention. I promise that this will be one of the main focuses of mine and will continue working with Town and R.M. Councils to find a solution.
