Meet the Candidates: Lisa Pasin

City of Trail: Pasin, Lisa – Councillor Candidate

  • Oct. 29, 2014 11:00 a.m.

Lisa PasinI worked in the health and wellness industry from 2000-2009, concentrating on sales, marketing, training and education. My post secondary education includes a Bachelor of Science (Biology), University of British Columbia and a Masters Degree in Business Administration, Royal Roads University. After completing a Master’s Degree in Business Administration in 2011, I joined the KBRH Health Foundation as Director of Development.  My focus now is to manage the fundraising, marketing and administrative operations of the foundation with the end result of improving health care for citizens of the Kootenay Boundary.

Public relations and fiscally responsible management of public funds are key components of my position.

I am also a member of the LCCDTS (Lower Columbia Community Development Team Society), Health and Hospital Committee.

The number-one challenge facing Trail is implementing strategic initiatives to support our citizens and enhance the city, within the confines of a restricted budget.

This includes initiatives such as invigorating the downtown core, providing opportunities for business, land and housing development, supporting social and cultural events, maintaining and improving our infrastructure, and beautifying our city to attract tourists.

The needs of multiple stakeholders and interested parties must be balanced.  Trail cannot remain stagnant, as it will fall further behind our neighboring areas.  Yet fiscal responsibility and accountability is very important to our citizens.

I am committed to listening to the concerns of our citizens and thoroughly evaluating all opportunities presented to strategically grow Trail.  Communication is key, as it will allow me to discover what is important to citizens of our area and also facilitate understanding throughout the community as to why and how decisions are made.

I believe that we, as citizens of Trail, need to collectively invest in our community to ensure we have a sustainable, healthy community for generations to come.  I am committed to support strategic and fiscally responsible initiatives to enhance the City of Trail.

The lack of regional collaboration between all neighboring communities is hurting our entire area. The network of municipalities within the Greater Trail area is dependent on one another for employment, recreation, services, healthcare, as well as entertainment.

I believe that all elected officials, across all municipalities, need to improve communication and the level cooperation, with the end goal of bringing prosperity and growth to all our communities. Our local economies are interdependent.  We will prosper, remain stagnant or decline economically as one region, not as individual municipalities.

We need to work together for the betterment of all our communities.
