My late husband, Cliff Knutson and I moved to the Bentley district in 1976 and into the town of Bentley in 1997. Our five children all graduated from Bentley School. We owned and operated Bentley Video Rentals and for the last seven years I have managed Bentley Storage.

My volunteer activities include Bentley Museum Society, Bentley and District Historical Society, Bentley Community Van Society, Bentley Senior Citizen’s Housing Society (Westview) and Bentley Subdivision and Development Appeal Board.

I want to ensure you that, contrary to what you may have been told or heard, my health is excellent and I am dedicated to this endeavor. I am raising my 12-year-old great-granddaughter and as a result have lots of energy.

If elected, I will strive for a strong, effective council that focuses on serving all citizens of Bentley and helping to make decisions that will benefit the whole town.

Healthy debates are part of the democratic process. I will bring common sense and practicality to all discussions and work with council in a cooperative, collaborative manner. A member of council can only be successful and effect change by developing a good working relationship with the other members of council and administration.

I have time to be a councillor and want to make meaningful and effective contributions to Bentley. I will become informed and discuss issues with the public for input when necessary.

I will focus on the town’s infrastructure, and support new industrial and residential development to help pay the costs. I will strive to maintain a healthy, safe environment with good air quality, safe drinking water and by diverting heavy traffic.

I could be your new face on council. If elected please do not hesitate to contact me with your ideas, comments or concerns by calling 403-748-2455 or email me at knutson9@telus.net.
