St. Jacques: ‘Open to new ideas, true to community values’

I have put my name forward for Mayor because I believe that I can make a difference.

My experience and energy could be put to good use in moving Ucluelet into the future.

This community is my home. It’s hard to believe that we moved here, temporarily, 39 years ago! When we first arrived in Ucluelet, we felt a comfort and a sense of ease, as soon as we drove into town and that feeling hasn’t changed.

It’s the kind of community that wraps its arms around you and makes you feel relaxed and cozy. That’s why we’re still here all these years later.

Dennis and I have raised our family here and have participated in many different aspects of our community, from Brownies to Whale Fest and everything in between.

Since last being mayor, I have remained involved.

I’m a director of the Westcoast Community Resources Society, chair of Tourism Ucluelet, a director of Alberni Valley Hospice Society and a director of Port Alberni Port Authority.

I believe it’s important to stay open to new ideas and opportunities, but it’s crucial to stay true to our community values.

I also believe in being open and communicative.

I think it’s very important to engage community members, from students to seniors, and listen to their thoughts and ideas.
