FORT ST. JOHN, B.C. – Another Fort St. John resident has put her name forward to run for Fort St. John City Council and she may be familiar to some already.

Fort St. John District & Chamber of Commerce Executive Director Lilia Hansen officially filed her paperwork on Thursday afternoon at City Hall.

“In my current role as the Executive Director with the Fort St. John & District Chamber of Commerce, I’m really fortunate to work with many businesses and many non-profit groups and I would like to bring their voices to the table and my job as Executive Director keeps me connected and approachable.”

Hansen added that she wants to bring bridges between Council and groups in the community. She also has her own perspective she would like to bring.

“I think the fresh prospective I would bring is just the many voices that I could carry forward from the groups I’m connected with now.

I’m approachable but I also like to hear other people’s thoughts, I like to discuss things and sometimes you might have an idea that you feel so confident about and then after you listen to someone else’s view point, you think ‘you know what? they have better ideas than I have’ so I’m willing to listen.”

Nomination period began on July 25 at 9:00 a.m. Fort St. John resident Becky Grimsrud was the first to put her name forward.

Nominations will end on August 4, 2017 at 4:00 p.m.
