Denise Bertrand is an active member of the District of Elkford community, continually offering her services to the Food Bank, the Elkford Snowmobile Association, the Golf Club and the Elkford ATV Club. But this year, Betrand plans to bring her mandate forward in politics as she runs for a District of Elkford councillor position in the 2014 municipal election.
“I already do a lot of community service work and I feel that maybe I can be of better service working directly through the district,” Bertrand said. “I would certainly like to entertain the thought of senior initiative and programs, things that aren’t being offered here.”
She went on to say, “I would like to see some innovative ideas brought to the table.”
Other issues Bertrand plans to bring forward are concerns with light pollution and land use.
Bertrand has been a part of the District of Elkford Community for 10 years now, maintaining an active role with the Food Bank for five of those years.
