Incumbent Council Candidate (Warfield) Arlene Parkinson

October 14th, 2022

I am retired, married with 2 daughters and 2 grandchildren.  We have lived in Warfield since 1978.  I served 3 terms on the Village of Warfield Council from 1990 to 1999.  After retiring from Local Government I worked as the secretary treasurer for the Association of Kootenay and Boundary Local Governments until 2016 when I was re-elected to Village of Warfield Council in a bi-election.

During the last 6 years I have served as Alternate Director for the Regional District of Kootenay Boundary, Director on the West Kootenay Boundary Hospital District Board, Director on the West Kootenay Boundary Transit Committee, and on the Ktunaxa Kinbasket Treaty Local Government Committee.  I am also your Village representative on the Municipal Insurance Association.

Our Village has challenges and with the assistance of our incredible staff and volunteers I am confident we can work through them.  Our infrastructure is aging and our biggest hurdle now is the sourcing of water for our Village after 2026.

To the Council Table I would bring knowledge, experience and history.  I am committed to teamwork, and feel communication is key.  I believe professional development training should be available to any and all elected or staff.  Please reach out to me at aparkinsonforvow@gmail.com if you would like to chat. Please Vote on October 15!
