Letters: Changes to Cultus Lake elections welcomed

Changes to the Cultus Lake Park Board to make the board more accountable to the people it serves

Congratulations to Sue and Gary Lister! It’s easy to complain about a problem, and to look at the downsides of any possible solutions, or to get discouraged because it seems impossible to get exactly what you want.  Instead, the Listers did something.

As many as 926 Lakers signed their petition to change the voting for Cultus Lake Park Board to make the board more accountable to the people it serves.

A big thank you also to our MLA, Laurie Throness, for following through with the petition; to the City of Chilliwack for their support; and to those Cultus Lake Park Board members who supported the process.

It’s true, it’s not done yet, and we all need to pay more attention to our elections when they happen, but this is a great first step.
