Election 2014: Anderson launches bid for Vernon council

City of Vernon: Scott Anderson recently sought the federal Conservative nomination

Scott Anderson has filed papers for a seat on Vernon council.

Scott Anderson has entered the race for Vernon city councillor.

Anderson ran in the 2011 civic election and recently sought the federal Conservative nomination.

“We absolutely need to revitalize the business environment in Vernon,” said Anderson, who is in corporate communications and operate a recycling business.

“It’s not just a matter of streamlining city regulations, although that is crucial. It will also require provincial and federal co-operation on such things as transportation.”

Anderson says there is a need to focus on repairing city infrastructure.

“I’m also deeply concerned about a perceived inability of citizens to make their voices heard by council,” he said.

“As councillor I plan to actively seek out input from citizens on major issues, and to bring those forward to council.”

He sits on several boards and committees at all three levels of government and is a member of the Silver Star Rotary Club and the Greater Vernon Chamber of Commerce.

The other candidates for Vernon councillor are Juliette Cunningham, Kari Gares, Jack Gilroy, Art Gourley, Janet Green, Shawn Lee, Catherine Lord, Dalvir Nahal, Mark Olsen, Brian Quiring, Bob Spiers and James Todd.
