Cathy Korolek is vying for a seat on Grand Forks city council

I am Cathy Korolek, married with two children and three grandchildren. Originally, from Fort St. James. Moved to Grand Forks 11 years ago, Rod went to work for Pope & Talbot.

I love what I do and I love where I live, downtown. I can be found at Heart n’ Sole Quilts, come to talk…

I care about our community, our values, the people who live and share our community. Keeping everyone safe.

Well paying jobs, adequate housing, accessible medical, all important concerns identified in the Vital Signs report.

I’ve gone to Nepal on a medical mission, worked with amazing people helping children.

I worked with two women collecting approximately 2,000 quilts from our area. The Wrap a Smile Project has gathered over 20,000 quilts, 20,000 children have received these gifts of love.

After 23 years as administrator then personal banker, I opened Heart n’ Sole Quilts. I am very comfortable developing business plans, setting goals.

It is important to support local business, encourage new start-ups, mentoring programs, work with the regional chamber to promote our town as place to visit, explore the outdoors, experience our shops.

Eight hundred quilt projects later, I am still going strong. Having met, shared confidences and inspiration with hundreds of people. Many come to Grand Forks, have lunch, often stay the night.

I am a Rotarian of 23 years. Currently, assistant Governor, looking after seven clubs (five in B.C., two in Washington).

I am very excited about the water park.

We have travelled the world and we live in the best place…

Please cast your vote for me, Cathy Korolek, Nov. 15.
