YOUR CANDIDATE FOR DEPUTY MAYOR, TANYA SNELL
Some of key priorities of my campaign are:
- Keeping taxes as low as possible;
- Supporting existing and promoting new business to support our tax base and our community needs;
- Exploring transportation options – expanding bus hours, uber options, taxis and alternative ideas to allow residents and tourists to safely support our restaurants and entertainment;
- Supporting our newly elected School Board Trustee to continue our advocacy for a high school;
- Actively looking for opportunities to reduce our environmental footprint at our facilities and in our operations;
- To attract and support primary services for our residents;
- To attract the return of a walk-in medical clinic and more full time doctors to our community;
- Supporting the return of a sustainable and balanced development plan for the Beachfront and our Downtown Development Plan; and
- Supporting a robust strategy to re-ignite our tourism impact – this includes customer service, esthetics, marketing and experience delivery for our visitors near and far.
There are many other passions and ideas that I am excited to contribute.

WHAT PEOPLE ARE SAYING
My first encounter with Tanya was watching her on television during a political debate, when she ran for School Trustee. She made quite an impression. Rather than the customary self-promotion and deprecation of her competitor she recognized his own unique qualifications and commended his credibility. What a refreshingly honest, dignified and shift in tone within what is routinely a rancorous municipal political atmosphere. Apparently, a sufficient number of constituents were as impressed with her grace and generosity as I was, and she was rewarded with a victory.
I cannot put enough emphasize on how much of an impact Tanya had on my life during this time; she gave me a safe space to be who I was, to work through the trauma of being bullied daily at school, of encouraging my love of administration and program planning that I still use to this day, to build positive relationships with members of the community, to become a leader when I struggled to even make eye contact with others. She gave me a sense of worth and a sense of belonging.
I am now 36 years old and continue to keep in contact with Tanya even though we live far away from each other. Tanya is the most warm, genuine, inclusive, giving person I have ever met. I am blessed to be able to follow along and witness all the good she’s doing for her local community through fundraisers and outreach programs. My childhood wouldn’t have been the same without Tanya and her dedication to bettering her community and for that I am eternally grateful. I have no doubt that Tanya will continue to better the lives she touches and will always be in her corner cheering her on!
