District of Mission: Pam Alexis, candidate for council

Mission community builder Pam Alexis is seeking a seat on council in November.

Alexis said she will bring balance to the council table and will work hard to make Mission a more liveable and vibrant community.

“Our community leaders, including those at the council table, should encourage, enhance, and promote the initiatives we do well to instil pride in our community,” said Alexis.

She believes more needs to be done to help young families, which make up most of Mission’s population.

“We have a great number of people who leave Mission every day (to work) and come back to sleep and spend the weekends,” said Alexis. “When they do come home, we need to make them feel safe and a part of an inclusive community.”

Directing more dollars towards parks and recreation programming can encourage citizens to get involved while making the community a more liveable place for that age group, offered Alexis.

Alexis, who conducted a survey about local seniors for the province’s Better at Home program, also understands the needs of the elderly.

She suggested the new seniors centre in Mission should be a mix use facility to help recover costs and bring different demographics together.

Alexis has spent many years volunteering in the community. She served as the vice president of the 2014 BC Winter Games in Mission, and is on numerous boards and committees in the community. She is the vice president of the Mission Regional Chamber of Commerce and is a part of the Rotary Club. She has received four Paul Harris Service Awards, the Myrtle Evertt Woman of the Year Award and most recently, an Exceptional Accomplishment and Leadership Awards from the District of Mission.

Alexis also served as a Mission school district trustee for two terms (2005-2011).
