Nadine Snow makes mayoral bid

Political newcomer says she wants better connection between city and residents

Nadine Snow became the sixth and final person to submit a bid for mayor when she filed her nomination papers last week.

Snow, who has lived in Abbotsford for more than two decades, said in an email to The News that she is “hoping to make a positive change in our community for the benefit of all residents.”

Snow continued: “I am not a politician and have limited experience in civic politics but I am a true team player that is willing to listen and learn. I have had many years experience in a retail environment, which has exposed me to people from all facets of our community and their concerns.”

She said she is running for the mayor’s chair to better connect residents with decision-makers.

“I am passionate and tenacious in matters that I feel need to be corrected and will work diligently to accomplish resolutions for the betterment of the community,” she said in her email. “I am a proud Canadian, and an Indigenous person and feel that we all need to come together as people to make this a thriving community.”
