District of Hope: Stewin, Heather - Council candidate

Heather Stewin

What is your background or political experience?

I owned and operated Panago Pizza in Hope for 17 years. Received several awards for my service to this community locally, provincially and nationally. I was a member of the Chamber of Commerce in Hope and held the position of vice president.


What are the most pressing issues facing Hope?

As with most successful business endeavours the most pressing issues are QSC – Quality Service and Cleanliness. If we want to sell this town to people who live here, and visit here we need to focus on the quality of our town, provide a level of excellence in service and clean it up.


If elected, what would be your main priority as councillor?

My main priority as councillor for the community would be to build the relationships between the people of Hope and it’s governing body. Through communication and a strong presence in person and in social media I hope to be a bridge over troubled waters.


Why should people vote for you?

I am asking for your support on Nov. 15 to be elected as a councillor for the District of Hope. A vote for me on Nov. 15 will be a vote for transformation and communication. I do not have a personal agenda or an ax to grind. I simply believe that I have something to offer to bring hope back into Hope.
