Fernie city councillors

Councillors support Voter Challenge

Fernie Councillors Jon Levesque and Ange Qualizza spent time last week engaging youth in local schools.

In response to the Voter Challenge the City of Nelson issued, Fernie Councillors Jon Levesque and Ange Qualizza spent time last week engaging the College of the Rockies, Isabella Dicken Elementary School and Fernie Secondary School.

The goal was to reflect the spirit of the Voter Challenge, which is simply to get people voting and also use it as an opportunity to strengthen our relationship with our community. Engaging students in our community has been a high priority of Councillor Levesque and Councillor Qualizza and they were very pleased when the schools accepted their invitation to speak to the children.

 

The Voter Challenge is a non-partisan initiative that allowed for creative license with each group the councillors presented to.
