Leanne Herrick

On October 9, 2014 I registered to represent you as an incumbent in the upcoming municipal election November 15. I hope to be part of success for the Chilliwack River Valley residents in the near future as Director, Electoral Area E.

Have lived in the CRV for 16 years, prior to raising a family in White Rock BC.

We bought our home with dreams of retiring in paradise, and have worked hard to make dreams a reality over many years.

I am grateful for our valley, our water, the wilderness, clean air and mountains. We have much to be grateful for here in our Paradise. We need to look after it, which requires great dedication.

The increasing visitor numbers provide us with challenges, As well, the requests for increased logging, mining, ATV usage and run of river power, to name a few.

We have numerous unique challenges in the CRV, that deserve attention ongoingly. You can count on me to have a finger on that pulse if elected.

A work life in Health Care Regionally for 34 years, I am a SupervisorInternal Auditor. I take great pride in our success in a challenging Surgical portfolio, implementing change for patient safety. In my

10 years as the sole Internal Auditor for the Surgical portfolio in Fraser Health, we have made a staggering difference for patient safety, something I am very proud of, for those who must visit us. We are leading edge in patient safety due to the commitment from leadership, who have been supportive over many years to achieve the best for our future visitors.

Extensive training in People skills, Communication, Change management, Conflict resolutions, Internal Auditing ISO 9001:2000 to name a few of my accomplishments.

I believe people are our greatest asset, and know I could not perform this role without you, the democratic voice. Your issues are important to you.

I look forward to an opportunity to work for you, with you, in the future, learning, growing and changing as we work within our current bylaws, and create new paths to travel.

Finally, in this time of giving thanks, the shoes of Director Lamson will be tough to fill. David has dedicated many, many years of tireless effort for us here. Thank you David for all you have accomplished for us, I admire your commitment and dedication to our valley. Enjoy your retirement, David.

Sincerely, Leanne.
