VIcky Rokstad has lived in Telkwa for more than a decade and, if elected as mayor, she hopes to lower taxes or put a cap on them and bring more services to the community. She has worked as a bylaw enforcement officer with the village for six years and as a casual with the village office since 2009. If elected, she wants to bring businesses, a health care facility and recreation centre to the village.
“You have to come up with some good strategies to attract business, which will attract development and will help Telkwa grow,” said Rokstad. “Then we can start to get the amenities that we need like health centres.”
