Melodie Kolisnyk, Area G candidate

Melodie Kolisnyk, born and raised in Keremeos, moved to Alberta and returned home 13 years ago

Melodie Kolisnyk, born and raised in Keremeos, moved to Alberta and returned home 13 years ago. During my time in Alberta I was a small business owner, sat on numerous boards and clubs as well as being president of the Chamber of Commerce. Being an active member of the community, coaching ball and hockey, also playing has always been a big part of my life. Since moving back home to Keremeos I am a member of the Keremeos Community Church and recently joined the Keremeos Elks as secretary/treasurer. During the year if I am not in the office doing accounting I can be found on the back of a horse enjoying our beautiful area.

Politics has always held an interest with me and I would love to be part of the betterment of the community that I live in. Rural Keremeos, Hedley and Olalla all need Provincial and Federal Funding to improve their water systems and funding to bring our dike up to Provincial standards. This and other priorities that the community identifies, I am hoping that if I am successful in my bid to be Area G Director that I can accomplish this.
